New Book answers Eoghan Harris's sectarian fantasies
At the end of the War of Independence, two brothers were shot at Coolacrease, Co. Offaly, and their house burned. Their execution was ordered by the senior IRA command for taking up arms against the democratically elected Irish government in time of war.
In 2007 RTÉ broadcast a documentary film portraying the execution of the Pearson brothers – who were Protestant - as a sectarian atrocity and an act of ethnic cleansing by local Republicans in furtherance of a land grab, with the complicity of the Irish Land Commission. It was claimed by Reel Story Productions, commissioned by RTE to make the programme, that their case was proven by official documents.
This book, producing the full documentary record, rebuts the charges made by RTÉ against the people of Cadamstown, the Army of the Dáil and the Irish Land Commission. It shows the charges to be baseless propaganda refuted by the documentary evidence.
This for the first time is the full true story of the events at Coolacrease.
In addition to the commentary by the authors, there are a further 200 pages of annotated documentary, including 50 photos, three maps, reproductions of 60 documents from Bureau of Military History (Witness Statements, IRA reports), British Natinal Archives (British Military Court of Inquiry into the Pearson execution, Pearson claims to the "Irish Grants Committee"), Irish land records (Irish Land Commission, Land Registry and Land Valuation Offices) and newspaper articles.
