SummaryLe ceithe scór bliain anuas, bhí feachtas ar bun ag gaolta an deichniúir a crochadh i Muinseo i 1920/21, ag éileamh go n-adhlacfaí na coirp i dtalamh coisricthe. An bhliain seo caite, faoi stiúir an phaiteolaí stáit, an Dr. John Harbison, dí-adhlacadh coirp an deichniúir agus tugadh sochraid stáit dóibh. For the past eighty years, the relatives of the ten hanged in Mountjoy prison in 1920/21 campaigned to have the bodies buried on blessed ground. Last year, under the watchful eye of the state pathologist, Dr. John Harbison, the bodies of ten young men were exhumed and given a state funeral.
