#OnThisDay 1916 Thomas Kent was arrested after a four hour long gun fight with the RIC, who had arrest warrants for him & his brothers, outside his home in Cork. Kent’s brother was shot dead & another was wounded. One RIC man was also killed. Thomas was arrested. He was to be executed just like the Easter Rising leaders in Dublin.
