23 June 1906 (NG) Death of a local Journalist

It is with deep regret that we have to announce the death of Mr Denis Tracey, who for many years was a very reliable and trustworthy member of our staff. [Nenagh Guardian]. For several years he was the "Guardian" special district representative at Thurles, where he made himself popular with all classes. Owing to changes on our reporting staff, Mr Tracey returned to Nenagh, and remain in our employ until last Autumn, when he transferred his services to the "Sentinel" but only remained connected with that paper a comparative short time. Since then he acted principally as correspondent for more than one Dublin daily, and was very often temporarily employed on the "Guardian", although failing health prevented our availing of his services as often as we would have liked. His death took place on Monday last, at his mother’s residence, Carriganagh, near this town, and his remains were interred at Killodiernan on Wednesday, his funeral being largely attended.

Thomas Tracey/Treacy, Casements Irish Brigade

I am researching Casements Irish Brigade, which was the attempt by Sir Roger Casement to raise a brigade from Irish Prisoners of War in Germany in WW1 and take them back to fight for Irish independence.
The attempt never worked, he only got 56 recruits, one of whom was John Tracey, but I have little on the man. it comes down to:

"Casement just records him as a labourer before joining. Keogh (the sergeant major who ran the Irish Brigade) has him as Thomas Tracey, a big six footer from [Roscrea?] Tipperary. And records that Tracey supervised the Irishmen's mascot, a red-haired terrier called Rebel, who enjoyed catching the many rats in Zossen camp. I cannot find a service record nor a pension record. Nor a Medal card. One would expect him to be in Royal Irish Regt if he came from Tipperary."

Casement came back to Ireland just before the Easter Rising in 1916 with a boatload of rifles, but was caught and hanged. The Irish Brigade were left in Germany, and most just merged back into Irish life after the war
Any information on John Tracey?

Assistant Nurse's Qualifications.

Miss Treacy, who some time ago was appointed assistant nurse iu the fever hospital, but whose appointment could not be sanctioned by the L.G.B. as she had not at the time stood for her qualifying examination, wrote that she had now passed it, and enclosed a copy ot the certificate of her qualifications. She did not enclose the original owing to the present uncertainty of the post, but would send it if necessary, and asked wheu she could take up the duties; The clerk pointed out that the last communication they had from the Local Government Board on the matter was one ordering a new election, and the question now arose whether they should have a new election or could they rely on the appointment of Miss Treacy, already made. Chairman—What would you advise? Clerk—Try the L.G.B. again. Mr. Callanan thought that as there were at present no fever patients they need not be in a hurry, but the clerk pointed out that a permanent nurse would be cheaper than the system of getting a nurse when required. They had experienced that lately. After further discussion it was ordered that the clerk show Miss Treacy's certificate to the medical officer of health, and, if sufficient, the L G B. should be again asked for their sanction failing which a new election to be had that day three weeks.

Richard Treacy of Bishopswood, Co. Tipperary

Now, at that class in Knockavilla, as time went on I got acquainted with several of the young men and women who played a great part in the struggle for freedom. There I got acquainted and became an intimate friend with Richard Treacy of Bishopswood, who became the Chairman of the Sinn Fein Club in the years that followed and was one of those who, in later years, defied the British Government by reading publicly the Proclamation of Dáil Eireann, and was imprisoned for a long time in Belfast Jail under very trying conditions, He was one of those who smashed through the roof of that jail when the fighting took place there and hoisted an improvised tricolour flag above the Belfast Jail at Crumlin Road.

Another man I met at this class was Michael Sheehan who, like Richard Treacy, has gone to his eternal rest. He was a workman. Treacy was a farmer, but Michael Sheehan and his brother, Sean, were working with one of the local land holders and in the years that followed, they took a very active part in the struggle.

...Before 1908 we had formed a Sinn Fein Club with Richard Treacy as President and Sean O'Dwyer as Secretary, and I think I filled the role of a sort of general orgariiser and was regarded, I must admit, as being the leader in anything that was being done

Witness: Eamon O'Dwyer, Member IRB, 1904 - 1921; Officer IV and IRA, Tipperary, 1913 – 1921 [signed 1956]

At 9.30 on the morning after, i.e. 16th August, 1918, I was surprised by a visit of six R.I.C. men who arrested me while at breakfast. I was sent to Clonmel Jail, where I spent a month, and afterwards to Belfast Jail. Tried at Victoria Barracks, Cork, with my companions John Hassett of Barnane, Co. Tipperary, Seumas Mulcahy Lyons, Richard Treacy and others, we received a sentence of two years each for our faith in Ireland's cause and our uncompromising loyalty to her ancient claim to liberty.

Fired on after leaving Catholic church

Another Policeman has been murdered in Tipperary, A comrade was wounded at the same time.The shooting took place at 7'30 yesterday evening in the village square of Toomevara, which is stated to have been filled with people. They were returning from a service in the Roman Catholic Church. Constables Rock and Healy, of the local police force, were amongst the worshippers, and were on their way to their barracks when they were shot. They were unarmed. Just as they reached the square, some persons who were behind them opened fire with revolvers. Constable Rock fell on the pathway fatally wounded, and Constable Healy staggered away with a bullet wound in his body. Rock appealed to his assailants to show him mercy and they replied by firing three more shots at him, all of which took effect. The murderers then dissapeared into the crowd. Dr. Powell of Nenagh was summoned to the wounded constables. Rock had been shot in four places and died a few hours after. Healy's wound is not believed to be serious. A civilian named Treacy who was passing when the shooting started was wounded in the leg by a bullet. Today soldiers and policemen from Nenagh searched the district, but have made no arrests.

Mrs Bridget Treacy, Soloheadbeg, Donohill, County Tipperary

Mrs B Treacy, Grant from Dail Special Fund (National Archives).

Record 3174 29/1/1926:    Copy minute to JJ Walsh, Minister for Posts and Telegraphs, 29 January 1926, stating that the President has read his letter concerning the case of Mrs Treacy, Soloheadbeg, Donohill, County Tipperary, and that he is addressing a special letter in connection with the case to the Minister for Defence.

Record 3175 29/1/1926:    Copy minute to the Minister for Defence from the President's Office, 29 January 1926, stating that the President thinks the case of Mrs Bridget Treacy is one in which a special attempt should be made to provide a pension for the applicant. She has been allowed the maximum gratuity under the Act [Army Pensions Act, 1923?] but he considers that the granting of a pension to her would be a more suitable alternative.

Record 3176 5/3/1926:      Letter to Banim from AW Waters, for the Chief of Collection, Irish Land Commission, 5 March 1926. He encloses a copy of the Fair Rent file relating to the holding of Mrs Bridget Treacy. `I am afraid it will not help you much beyond establishing the fact that Mrs. Treacy was not in occupation of the holding when the Fair Rent was fixed in 1892'.

Record 3177 4/3/1926:      Statement by General O Duffy, 4 March 1926, relating to the case of Mrs Treacy. When he was on inspection in Tipperary recently he called to see Mrs Treacy, the mother of Sean Treacy, killed in action in October 1920. She is in very bad circumstances. A once comfortable home is now derelict. Sean, the statement declares, was Mrs Treacy's only means of support following the death of her husband in 1918. `I believe Mrs Treacy is in debt, but she would not admit it. She, and her aged sister, who lives with her, have been under Doctor's care, suffering from neuritis, for a considerable time past. She would only admit that the Doctor and other friends in Tipperary town "were not hard on her". The poor woman has a certain amount of pride, and I had much difficulty in getting any particulars of her financial position. She preferred rather to talk of her son, who was her only child, to show me his photographs as a child, as an altar boy, and later on as a Volunteer in uniform, and she cherishes a copy-book in which he wrote extracts from the speeches of Emmett, Tone and Mitchell, when yet a boy, and to talk of his love and sufferings for Ireland… She is the ideal Irish mother and entertains no bitterness against anyone. She feels very keenly, however, that the offer of £150 from the Government belittled her son of whose bravery and patriotism she is so proud. She broke down when she said "others who are yet alive and well got large amounts because they looked for it. I thought the Government would do something decent for me, but they didn't mind the poor helpless widow who sacrificed her darling son"'. He believes the case is one of total dependency.

Record 3178 11/6/1926:    Minute to the President from the Army Finance Officer, 11 June 1926, relating to the case of Mrs Treacy. The minute states that it `has been found impossible to assess this lady's claim as one of total dependency under the Army Pensions Act of 1923'. The case could, he writes, only be dealt with by the payment of a substantial lump sum.

Record 3179 1/7/1926:      Extract from a letter of 1 July [1926] from Mrs Treacy. She writes that when General O Duffy visited her he arranged with her to accept the sum of £250 with a yearly gratuity of £50 which she considered reasonable. Since then she has heard no more.

Record 3180 5/7/1926:      Minute to the President from JJ Walshe, Department of Posts and Telegraphs, 5 July 1926, relating to the question of the payment of a gratuity to Mrs Treacy. He hopes, he writes `it will be possible to satisfy her'.

Record 3181 No date:       Statement, no date, relating to the case of Mrs Bridget Treacy. Mrs Treacy received £100 under the Army Pensions Act, 1923, in respect of the death of her son. This was subsequently raised to £150. `It is obvious that £150 does not represent adequate compensation in the present case and many people bitterly accuse the State of ungenerous treatment of the mother of Sean Treacy, a man who after yeoman service had finally given his life for his country'. The case was construed as one of partial dependency and nothing more can be done in the case in the absence of amending legislation [i.e that Mrs Treacy was only partially dependent on her son for the necessities of life]. The minute however, states that there `does appear to be a very definite element of total dependency.' The case against Mrs. Treacy is that she is in possession of a farm of land but `after all, does ownership of land necessarily imply the means of livelihood'.

Record 3182 30/12/1926: Minute from Cosgrave to D O'Hegarty, 30 December 1926, stating that he wants the Minister [for Defence] to reconsider the case of Mrs Treacy. He argues that the case of Mrs Treacy was one of total dependency on her son.

Record 3183 3/3/1927:      Minute to the President from Eoin O Duffy, 3 March 1927, stating that he was surprised to get a letter from Mrs Treacy stating that nothing has been done for her since he submitted his memorandum on the case almost a year ago. He quotes from her letter where she writes `you came to see me on behalf of our President, and I am looking forward all this time since in disappointment and humiliation which adds to the loss of my martyred and only child'. O Duffy writes `The case is, indeed, very exceptional; I know of none more so, and if the amount set out above [£250 or £50 yearly for her remaining years] cannot be paid from official funds it is the duty of us who know the circumstances to act promptly and save this very fine type of Irish mother from ending her days in distress and anxiety'.

Record 3184 3/1927:         Note by Paul Banim, March 1927, stating that the Board had awarded £1 per week to Mrs Treacy in respect of the death of her son and that £250 arrears are payable to her.

Record 3185 23/3/1927:    Minute to `A Pol' [Paul Banim] from Eoin O Duffy, 23 March 1927, thanking him for the draft for Mrs Treacy.

Record 3186 6/4/1927:      Minute to Paul Banim from Eoin O Duffy, stating that he gave the draft for £260.17.1 to Mrs Treacy. He also gave her a personal cheque for £50. A receipt is attached acknowledging the cheque. `She appeared to appreciate the latter as a special grant from the President more than the larger amount & asked as a special token of her gratitude to give the President the attached photo and memorial card of Sean…. The dear old lady is now happy perhaps for the first time since Sean's death'.

Record 3187 19/4/1927:    Letter to Cosgrave from B Treacy, 19 April 1927, thanking him for his consideration and kindness.

1935 Prehistoric Grave near Clonmel.

Some three years ago. when a workman, John Byrne, was engaged in raising sand on Mr. W. Magner's land at Green Park (or Greenville), townland of Raheen, in County Waterford, but close to the south-east of Clonmel, he came upon a grave in a fine vein of sand. I only heard of the find some time afterwards, and consequently was unable to get any exact particulars or measurements. It was, however, described to me by Bertie Treacy of Clonmel, who saw it on the day it was discovered. He says the grave was horizontal, 5½ or 6 feet long and 2 feet wide, and that the skeleton was virtually intact, with the head to the north and feet to the south. The cist was rectangular, composed of flat slabs of stone laid on their edges, and covered by flat slabs. The skeleton fell to pieces on the removal of the flagstones, and none of the fragments were preserved. No trace of the grave now remains.
