On 6 May 1882 the world was plunged into shock and Ireland into a political crisis. In this acclaimed book author and historian Dr. Shane

Kilmainham Tale 7

Kenna (KT3 - Resistance & Rebellion) tells how two of the British Government’s most senior administrators in Ireland, the newly appointed Chief Secretary, Lord Frederick Cavendish, and the top civil servant in Ireland, the Undersecretary at Dublin Castle, Thomas Henry Burke, were assass-inated in broad daylight by a never-before-heard-of Republican group called the Irish National Invincibles.

In the aftermath there was a massive police investigation resulting in the arrest of twenty-six men, the making of several informants, the execution of five men in Kilmainham Gaol, and the assassination, half way across the globe in the Southern Hemisphere, of the man seen as principally responsible for their betrayal.
