Cyril Jones agrees with Clare mayor Cathal Crowe’s boycotting of RIC commemoration

“Personally, I wouldn’t attend something like that. I would acknowledge that something has to be done. A certain amount of it is all right, as long as it’s done in a dignified way without going overboard,” said Mr Jones.

“It was explained to them that there were no hard feelings. It all happened in a dignified way,” said Mr Jones. The burning was a heavy blow for the family. “All their worldly possessions were destroyed except for a table, with a bullet hole in it from a shot fired into the house by the RIC, which was rescued from the burning building by neighbours.
