Patrick Goggin shot 21 Apr 1921

Patrick Goggin was a 7 year old boy, returning to his home in Carrigthomas, Ballinagree, having counted his father's cows. When his father heard shooting he ran to the scence and described seeing soldiers there. Some accounts cite ADRIC. The family were refused permission to take the badly wounded boy to hospital that evening, because of the curfew. The boy was taken to hospital the next day, but died of wounds about a week later. I cannot find the Military Inquiry in the WO files
