Remembering IRA Volunteer Liam Healy who was taken from his cell and executed by Free State forces in Cork on 13th March 1923.

‘If I had told on one of the boys, I would not be executed but, as you know, I would not have it said that there was a spy in our family, because as you know I was out for a Republic and I sincerely hope it will be got some day,’ he wrote.

Initially buried in Cork Gaol his body was handed over to his relatives in 1924.
