    'He died who loved to live,' they'll say,
    'Unselfishly so we might have today!'
    Like hell! He fought because he had to fight;
    He died that's all. It was his unlucky night.

    More than a few narratives from that time were economical with the truth, on both sides. I asked Grandad one time about Tom Barry's battles and he rolled his eyes and laughed. He'd known him back then and just said that he was "very vain...and let's leave it at that".

    Although he didn't know Barry personally , my own Grandfather who was from the Innishannon area was of the same opinion .
