These are just a few words taken from the testimony of Sally Hughes ( wife of Micheal Hughes). Micheal was murdered in North King street by the South Staffordshire regiment. In looking into the testimonies off all these men who were brutally killed it asks the question of why don’t we know about this?
Why now one hundred years on have we still not got the full truth and statements that were recorded. Will we ever know what really happened to those men and why it was done to them when they had nothing to do with the Volunteers.
Why Christopher Hickey a 16 year old boy was butchered to death. 31 pages, thats all we have. Maybe its all will ever have.
