Three Men were Executed in Birr during Irish Civil War 1923

#OnThisDay 1923 Three men were executed for armed robbery at Birr Castle, Offaly. They were too young to join the AT-IRA but were executed as republican prisoners. So young in fact, that two of them asked for a lemonade 15 minutes before they were shot. #Ireland #History
