Peter David Freyne

1921 Apr 11. Peter Freyne was aged 18 at the time of his death in the attack. His brother Frank Freyne also participated in the attack, and was one of those arrested a few weeks later during the burning of the Custom House. The evidence of the Auxiliayry that shot Freyne has been heavily redacted, and I have been unable to recover the name. There is no doubt that he was an active member of the IRA, and was participating in the attack on the hotel

He is buried in the Old Church graveyard next to the RC Church of the Assumption in Thomastown, Co Kilkenny.
