Talk on shooting of Bonniconlon RIC sergeant in Ballina

A bloody episode during the War of Independence will be the subject of a talk in Ballina Library on Wednesday next September 7. On Thursday March 4 of 1920, two young RIC constables, returning from patrol, called to Fanning’s public house at Bouladuff (knows as The Ragg), near Thurles to buy some provisions.

In an attempt to disarm the policemen, a melee ensued in which Galway born Constable John Heanue was fatally wounded.
