Publication of a bilingual book on Constable Charles McGee, RIC.

Seoladh leabhardha-theangach an shaol Constábla Charles McGee, Constáblacht Ríoga na hÉireann.

The author Dr. Madge O’Boyle is a grand-niece of RIC Constable Charles McGee. He was the first RIC officer to die in the 1916 Rising. He died as a result of a fatal shooting at Castlebellingham, County Louth on Easter Monday 1916. He was a native Irish language speaker who was born on Inisboffin Island, County Donegal in 1893. His appointment to a police barracks in County Louth led to his being caught up in the events of the 1916 Rising in the region.

In addition to an account of the events which led up to his death, the trial of the men who were accused of involvement in his death, and the effect of his death on the local community, and on Republican activity in the area will be explored in this publication.
