A special event is being held in Mohill this evening to mark the 100th anniversary of the murder of Dr Patrick Muldoon.
The local GP was shot dead on the street as he returned with a friend from playing cards on the evening of Sunday the 18th of March 1923.
A three man unit and a priest were implicated in the priest's murder, and it's said that the IRA, church and major figures in the emerging state at the time all collude din some way to cover up the killing.
Amateur historian Ken Boyle who has long had an interest in the story, and whose father's family came originally from Leitrim, has written a book on the story, and helped produce an RTE Documentary on One piece on the murder in recent years.
He and the producer of the documentary will attend the events in Mohill this evening which begin at half past eight and trace Dr Muldoon's last footsteps in the town.
"This event commences with a walk, a procession down from the Parish Priest's house which is located right beside the church, the catholic church in Mohill. We follow the footsteps down the hill towards the bridge area at the bottom of the town where the gunmen acosted Paddy Muldoon and where he was shot. The fifteen minute re-enactment will be shown on a large screen and then we'll go to one of the nearby public houses and there'll be a discussion on what happened afterwards"
