For the first time, I spotted this plaque commemorating Fr. Dominic, I.R.A. Brigade Chaplain. Upto then I had not known that there were chaplains in the War of Independence and Civil War.
The following day, Stair na hÉireann had a piece on Fr. Aloysius who had a similar role in Dublin and attended some of the Proclamation signatories before their execution.
The web again educates. Fr. Dominic was appointed by Tomás MacCurtain and was first to his house on the morning he was murdered. He then ministered Terence macSwiney in England during his hunger strike. Fr Dominic was also a spy recruiter.
He died in Bend, Oregan but his remains were returned and buried in Rochestown College.
Still learning every day.
