“Seventeen-year-old Patrick Hanley who was shot dead by crown forces – one of a series of murders in the Grattan Street/Broad Street area of Cork on the night of November 17 1920. His remains were subsequently laid out in his Fianna Eireann uniform in the mortuary of the Mercy Hospital and later removed to the church of SS Peter & Paul. He was buried in St Finbarr’s Cemetery, the Tricolor-draped coffin being shouldered all the way to the cemetery by the dead boy’s comrades.”
