Note: Hodnett, a local farmer aged 35 in Lislee parish, was shot and mortally wounded while going to Sunday Mass near Courtmacsherry on 8 May 1921. He died later the same day. A British military party was patrolling in the area at the time. It was claimed that he had ignored a military order to halt and had been shot on that account. Hodnett was unmarried and ‘took no interest in politics’. See FJ, 10 May 1921.
