Patrick Keogh and James Doyle of Malahide were charged with ‘depriving two private soldiers of their boots’ at Cloghran, Co. Dublin, on 29 May. The soldiers said they were enjoying a drink in a public house when a group of armed men held them up. They had no weapons—and, after the brief encounter, no boots either. Keogh refused to recognise the court but Doyle pleaded not guilty, perhaps feeling that a pair of boots was not worth dying for.

Unfortunately, the return to normality brought a new threat, that of a sustained assault by employers on earnings and living standards. The post-war boom was over, and workers in Britain had already suffered savage pay cuts, with miners’ wages reduced from 80s a week to 44s.

(The Leggings and the Bandoliers, a poem by Charlie Gilmore, published by Repsol Publications, Dublin, 1976) To Katherine O’Donnell, Justice for Magdalenes campaigner, who wants to live in a republic that cherishes all its people equally.
