Thomas Bryan - one of the Forgotten 10 of the War of Independence
When: Wednesday 10th March at 7pm
Where: Online via Zoom
This month’s first Teatime Talk, by 14 Henrietta Street tour guide Colin Ring, marks the centenary of the death of Thomas Bryan, whose family lived at 14 Henrietta Street. Bryan was executed in March 1921 in Mountjoy Gaol, after being found guilty of high treason for taking part in an ambush on British troops as they travelled to Dublin. Bryan was 24 years of age and had married just four months before his arrest.
Bryan is considered one of the ‘Forgotten 10’, along with Kevin Barry, Patrick Moran, Frank Flood, Thomas Whelan, Thomas Traynor, Patrick Doyle, Edmond Foley, Bernard Ryan, and Patrick Maher. These men were executed by British forces in Mountjoy Prison during the War of Independence and all were buried in unmarked graves.
