On October 7 1922, three young IRA members, Eamon Hughes, Brendan Holohan and Joe Rogers were arrested in Drumcondra by the National Army under Charlie Dalton, as they were found to be putting up anti-Treaty propaganda posters in the area. The following morning their lifeless bodies were found in at the Red Cow, Clondalkin.
