Hi - I haven't done any recent work on my Kennedy relations but this will spark me to dig up some papers. You are right about the kennedys fleeing to the hills. On a trip there a few years ago they were referred to locally as 'wanted men'. In fact some of the those Kennedys are now farming at Roscrea since their house was destroyed in the troubles with the black & tan.
