Who killed Thomas Hodgett?

Venue: Courthouse

In 1921, at the height of the War of Independence the Navan, Co. Meath postmaster, Thomas Hodgett was taken from his home and brutally murdered. To this day his killers have not been identified and it is by no means certain which side in the Anglo-Irish war was responsible for his death. Ultan Courtney will examine the new evidence that has emerged that may help identify the killers of the popular postmaster. The talk is based on his new book Sons of Fire: The Murder of Thomas Hodgett in 1921.
