Hello Seamus, I also was in Glin  as was John Hogan and yes' There was an investigation" I have the whole manuscript which I will have in my memoir in it's full 30 odd pages, to be included. My time was in the 40s and I still carry the scars. Happy St. Patrick's Day to you, John, Rob and all survivors, miss Jimmy lots.
