The bullet passed through her friend (6 years old) who died and then into theresa(7 years old) My Great grandmothers maiden name is Mooney and she came from Fuller cottages Harolds cross. Most of her family emigrated in the late 1800's. She had been married to an english soldier who died in teh Crimea war. My great grandparents were married in the Rathgar / rathmines area.
