Subject: RE: Questions re: Come Out Black & Tans?
My great-grandfather was born in Galway, and living in the US by his late teens. I can only imagine how he felt about the news he was hearing through the world press in those days of 1920, and in fact throughout the Civil War era, but I do know he was certain to tell his grandchildren the stories he had heard. He did not pass on hatred, but concern for his people, and the incidents that had taken place.
