The Civil War in Cabra

3 March 2013

NICKY KEHOE was a Sinn Féin councillor for Dublin North Inner City (including his home patch of Cabra) from 1999 to 2007. In 2002, he was just 74 votes from winning a Dáil seat in Dublin Central, coming third in first-preference votes in a constituency where the (then highly popular) Taoiseach Bertie Ahern habitually topped the poll. Nicky retired from frontline politics in 2007 but has remained a committed republican. In this extended ‘Remembering the Past’, Nicky looks back at the Civil War murders in 1923 of two young men in his Cabra neighbourhood by shadowy Free State forces waging a dirty war against the IRA.
