In 1907 Rev. William Burke presented The Case of Fr. Sheehy in History of Clonmel.    Fr. Burke wrote  that he  drew heavily on the work of R.R. Madden (author of 'The Lives and Times of the United Irishmen' in 1843).  R.R. Madden is probably the authority on the Fr. Sheehy case given that he was able to meet and interview people who were alive at the time of the awful period during which Fr. Sheehy as executed in 1766.  He certainly mingled with people of the parish whose parents were on the ground at that awful time. Both authors had access to the official papers from the period (eighteenth century)at the Public Records Office in Dublin, papers that were among the hundreds of thousands of records destroyed as a last action on the day the Four Courts was surrendered during Ireland's regrettable Civil War which lasted from June 1922 to May 1923.

Now, for the first time, 'The Case of Fr. Nicholas Sheehy' by Rev. William P. Burke and 'An Investigation into the Trial of Fr. Sheehy'' are brought to the public in one volume.   The book  includes an extra chapter on the 'Fr. Sheehy Commemorations at Clogheen and Shanrahan from 1869 to 2010'.  This chapter was previously written and published in 'Lonely Little God's Acre' by Edmund O'Riordan.  It is a vital part of the Fr. Sheehy Story as it details how successive generations have remembered Fr. Sheehy and commemorated his life and felt continued sorrow at the manner of his death at the hands of his enemies in 1766.
Tragic John Bridge, abandoned at Birth, apparently a simpleton, whipped by the Earl of Drogheda, a mere teenager at the time of his alleged murder,  was reported as having been killed in October 1764......   250 years ago.  He was much a victim of the times he lived in as Fr Sheehy.
