HC Deb 13 April 1921 vol 140 cc1127-8W

asked the Chief Secretary the result of the official inquiry into the murders of William Loughnane and Laurence Hinckley and the attempted murder on the same occasion of men named Regan, Griffin, Leahy, and Lupton, all of Thurles?


The finding of the Military Court of Inquiry in lieu of inquest into the deaths of Lawrence Hickey and William Loughnane was that they were wilfully murdered by persons unknown. The police have up to the present been unable to obtain any evidence leading to the identification of the person by whom these murders were committed or of the persons by whom the houses of the other persons mentioned in the question were raided on the same night.
