In 1907 Rev. William Burke presented The Case of Fr. Sheehy in
History of Clonmel. Fr. Burke wrote that he
drew heavily on the work of R.R. Madden (author of 'The
Lives and Times of the United Irishmen' in 1843). R.R.
Madden is probably the authority on the Fr. Sheehy case
given that he was able to meet and interview people who were
alive at the time of the awful period during which Fr.
Sheehy as executed in 1766. He certainly mingled with
people of the parish whose parents were on the ground at
that awful time. Both authors had access to the official
papers from the period (eighteenth century)at the Public Records Office in
Dublin, papers that were among the hundreds of thousands of
records destroyed as a last action on the day the Four
Courts was surrendered during Ireland's regrettable
Civil War which lasted from June 1922 to May 1923.
Now, for the first time, 'The Case of Fr. Nicholas Sheehy' by Rev.
William P. Burke and 'An Investigation into the Trial of Fr.
Sheehy'' are brought to the public in one
volume. The book includes an extra
chapter on the 'Fr. Sheehy Commemorations at Clogheen and
Shanrahan from 1869 to 2010'. This chapter was
previously written and published in 'Lonely Little God's
Acre' by Edmund O'Riordan. It is a vital part of the
Fr. Sheehy Story as it details how successive generations
have remembered Fr. Sheehy and commemorated his life and
felt continued sorrow at the manner of his death at the
hands of his enemies in 1766.
Tragic John Bridge, abandoned at Birth, apparently a
simpleton, whipped by the Earl of Drogheda, a mere teenager
at the time of his alleged murder, was reported as having
been killed in October 1764...... 250 years
ago. He was much a victim of the times he lived in as
'The Case of Fr. Nicholas Sheehy' is now available!!
