Summary

Ignorance is a terrible thing, I have never heard of Meelin and I know absolutely nothing about the subject matter of the above description. The big benefit of this job is that within a few hours I will know all there is to know about it! Thanking you in advance...Thanks to O Mac ( /photos/91549360@N03/ ) for the location and street view. There is no doubt that these so called "official reprisals" were a reality and were sanctioned at the highest level of command. ..beachcomberaustralia ( /photos/beachcomberaustralia/ ) and DannyM8 ( /photos/79549245@N06/ ) together managed to identify the most probable date for this photo and the link to the chapter 7 of Sean Moylan - Rebel Leader on Google Books ( https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=9JFBCGRKFTEC&pg=PA72&lpg=PA72&dq=reprisal+meelin&source=bl&ots=7AzQ2hM7ZT&sig=upSkj0qYLnUus18txK-DCFa8kMI&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjH7aOqnNjPAhWkA8AKHSj7AFw4ChDoAQgbMAA#v=onepage&q=reprisal meelin&f=false ) is a must read for anyone with an interest in the Meelin story. ..Photographer: W. D. Hogan..Collection: Hogan Wilson Collection ( http://catalogue.nli.ie/Author/Home?author=Hogan-Wilson Collection ) ..Date: Most likely 5th January 1921..NLI Ref.: HOG156 ( http://catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000217998 ) ..You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie ( http://catalogue.nli.ie )
