Hi John H. Mallory !

Best of luck with your endeavour re a plaque for the victims of that massacre on the quays in Dublin in 1914 - I gave it a mention in a recent blog post (see the 'Related Link' , below) : 'The Brits were by now near breaking-point ; they were more accustomed to being feared or, at best , ignored , by the public , and were seething with rage now that they were being laughed at by them . An Officer in charge felt the same, and he ordered one line of his men (approximately twenty soldiers) to halt and turn to face the jeering crowd ; when the soldiers had done as commanded , he instructed them to "ready weapons" and fire on the crowd , if he so ordered. It is not clear whether the order to fire was given or not but , regardless , the Brits did open fire - the people on the footpaths - men , women and children - were easy targets....'

Again, JHM, best of luck with the fundraiser.

Thanks,
Sharon.
