From the Archives: The Murder of Dr. Muldoon

by A. M. Cousins

& a letter from Dáil Eireann, August 1920

This month found a country:
Forces in uniform obeying
The Voice  of Duty, shooting —

And Keegan, not in his right mind,
Shot four civilians —

Discarding occupation; and correction
With conscience at the present time.
