@chocolatemice how was Dev elected to the Dáil in two constituencies in 1918?

The Valley of Knockanure


North Kerry wouldn’t have been too bad I suppose they offered at least a bit of token resistance. The South Kerry chaps were hiding under the bed along with most of the rest of the country.


Drumboe martyrs,3 kerrymen one Derry man, executed by free state cowards

FFS there’s parts of Ireland where there wasn’t a shot fired

The Civil War got dirty in Kerry alright. Templeglantine man David ‘Spy in the Castle’ Nelligan was busy back that direction


Granda was a kerryman,based around abbeyfeale,pub still in the family ( jack Fitzgeralds,hope it’s still there)family home road to duagh,


Jack was my grandad bro,granda was a ra man,Thomas Fitzgerald
