I highlighted it for your benefit.
Yes. But is that the only reason that he gets so much attention?
I think so. It does not make sense.
Just to give you an example. The Colthursts of whom Captain J C Bowen-Colthurst who executed Sheehy-Skeffington didn't get shot. The Sheehy's were from Kanturk. Burnt out maybe.
Don't they still own Blarney Castle.
Michael Collins & Sam Maguire ?

I might be wrong but I think the reason he was challenged on it was "truthiness" and if it were true it would have been a nasty little secret.
I think a more correct comparison for Bandon would be the Ballyseedy Massacre .
No probs with Kilmichael for me.
