Joe Queally – Echoes From a Civil War
Echoes from a Civil War tells two stories of violent death in rural Clare. In this riveting book, Joe Queally analyses the 1925 death in Fanore of Guard Thomas Dowling and the 1929 death in Tullycrine of CID detective, Tadhg O’Sullivan, placing them firmly in historical context. He identifies the main protagonists in each case, describes in detail the progression of events, the reaction of the authorities to each killing and their frustrated attempts to bring those responsible to justice.
Joe Queally, a native of North Clare, comes from a farming background and has a keen interest in local history.
