    William Healy’s letter to his father informing him of the execution date (which is now in UCC) may perhaps give some useful information about close relatives and friends.

    The following thesis gives the address of William Healy and a little more information about the circumstances of his capture and execution. http://eprints.nuim.ie/4069/1/The_Government's_Executions_Policy_During_the_Irish_Civil_War_1922_-_1923_(Breen_Murphy_-_62129007).pdf

    I am researching family history and would be interested to know if there is any more information on the family connections for (Bill) William Healy mentioned in the above records.

      In 1923 I was six years of age when my mother went down town to receive the message that her brother William had been executed. She had taken me along with her. It was the only time I ever saw her cry. She, Julia Healy grew up in Lackabawne House.
