Notes: 

During the War of Independance,General Liam Lynch   moved his brigade HQ from Lombardstown to the Nadd area in the Boggeragh Mountains where an IRA training camp was also in progress when a massive round up by British troops was conducted on the night of 9/3/1921.The area was surrounded by thousands of troops who were dropped off at various points to silently proceed to encircle the area. Lieutenant Ned Waters was billeted in a local house with four others when they were surprised at dawn by a company of soldiers who ordered them outside .Two of them bolted and were wounded by gunfire but escaped. . Ned Waters and two others were shot dead and the Military transcripts make very interesting reading. The  soldiers evidence was that they made a run for it ,were ordered to halt but kept running and were shot. In such circumstances the entry wounds should be through their backs but the doctor who examined them indicated the entry wounds were in the front,a clear case of assasination .The enquiry was conducted in a military court  thus avoiding an inquest where witnesses could be challenged.
