The Life & Death of the Loughnane Brothers

of Beagh, County Galway by Dr Conor McNamara

posted by Hilary Kiely

This book examines the killing of brothers Patrick and Harry Loughnane from the village of Shanaglish in the parish of Beagh, located on the Galway border with County Clare. The brothers were members of the local Volunteer Company and were killed on 26 November 1920 by the Auxiliaries following their arrest by the RIC. The brutality of the killings caused shock waves around Ireland at a time when communities were becoming accustomed to the wanton violence of the crown forces.
