    I have a book about Bloody Sunday. The picture of the team is in the book, . It was given to me by my cousin,TJ Redmond. I`ll share any information I have. The autograph album is truly a first source history treasure from Spike Island. I currently live in Bradenton,Florida USA. I have visited Mullinahone 3 times. Keep in touch. I am the daughter of James Doran. Jimmy was born March 1,1898 at Chapel St.. He continued to play football after he came to New York. He died Dec.24,1980 at age 82. I am his only child.

    Sean Brett is my Great Great Grandfather. The flying column is a rare book according to the price! Any other details about the 3 men?

    Thanks,
    John

    My granfather, Jack Doran was an undertaker and conveyed Séan Quinn’s body from Kilkenny to Mullinahone when it was released. My granuncle Jimmy Doran played football for Tipperary and played in Croke Park on Bloody Sunday in 1920.

      My father, James Doran, played on Bloody Sunday. He also was imprisoned on Spike Island and I have an album that has handwritten thoughts and poems that his fellow prisoners wrote. And, hello Paul. My son, Robert, sent me this link.

    Thanks. I have named my son, Daniel Brett McNally, since Sean Brett is a relative. Do you have any more details about these three individuals memorilised there in Mullinahone? I hope to visit Poulecapple and Mullinahone next year with my daughters. My grandparents are from Poulecapple. I look forward to our visit this next year in 2012, about August or so. I am not sure I am emailing to, but, have a nice day and thanks again for the info. My daughter loves and does Irish dancing. Sleep well. Charles.
