2 July 2009

The passing of Patrick (Packie) Treanor of Drumdart, Tydavnet, Co. Monaghan, on Thursday 18 June, severs yet another of the last living links between the Republican Movement of the past forty years and the men and women volunteers of the 1950s. Packie Treanor was a Saor Uladh volunteer who suffered gunshot wounds when his unit, led by Volunteer Alo Hand of Clones, Co. Monaghan, was challenged by undercover British forces on the night of 2 July 1958 in the townland of Clontivern, near Newtownbutler in Co Fermanagh. Volunteer Hand was killed in the ensuing exchange and Packie, following surgery at Enniskillen Hospital, was to spend the next number of years as a republican prisoner in Belfast's Crumlin Road Prison.
