SOUTH LIMERICK BLOODY SUNDAY VICTIM REMEMBERED
100 years ago on Friday 26th. November 1920 Tom Hogan Aged 19 Years died as a result of being shot 5 days earlier on Bloody Sunday. Tom was the youngest of seven children born to Patrick and Elizabeth Hogan in Tankardstown, Kilmallock, County Limerick. Before the age of 11, Tom had lost both his parents and his eldest sister, Katie, the only member of the family to have a child. Tom’s other sister, Maggie, left her job and came home to take care of the family.
Tom joined the Volunteers and moved to Dublin where he lived at St James’ Terrace in Dolphins Barn and worked as a mechanic by trade.
On Bloody Sunday, Tom was shot in the shoulder and admitted to the Mater Hospital in a critical condition. His right arm was amputated and gas gangrene set in after the operation. Tom Hogan succumbed to his injuries at 6.30pm on Friday 26th November. He was the 14th victim from Croke Park on Bloody Sunday and is buried in Dromin graveyard near Kilmallock.
Limerick GAA paid tribute to Tom Hogan. County chairman John Cregan laid a laurel wreath on Hogan’s grave at Dromin graveyard. The board will also supplement a commemorative plaque, which will be erected by the Dromin Graveyard Committee at the cemetery to honour Tom Hogan in the coming weeks.
