Patrick Bell shot 23.00 on 21 Apr 1921 died following O'Loughlin's murder in Tralee on the same date

O'Loughlin, a Temp Constable with the ADRIC was murdered at about 22.15 on 21 Apr 1921 in Tralee by an IRA hit squad. Patrick Bell was shot at 23.00 the same night by a British Army sentry. There does not appear to be a direct link. My feeling is that the sentry was jumpy following the death of O'Loughlin less than an hour earlier, within a few yards of where he was posted
