HC Deb 24 November 1920 vol 135 cc453-4W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland what were the total deaths, men, women, and children, re- spectively, occasioned by firing on the crowd at the Croke Park football ground on the 21st November; how many men, women, and children, respectively, were wounded; whether a child was bayonetted; whether the military and auxiliary police suffered any casualties; and, if so, what were the number of dead and wounded, respectively?


Ten men, one woman, and three children (under 14) were killed, or have died as the result of their injuries. These figures include the case of a woman who was crushed to death, and of a man who apparently died from shock. Twelve men have been detained in hospital for treatment of wounds or injuries. Fifty persons were treated in hospital, but not detained. I have no information as to how many of these cases were those of men, women or children, respectively. No child was bayonetted. There were no police or military casualties.
