Vindicating Captain James Kelly

By Fionnbarra O Dochartaigh

The treatment of a former Irish army captain, James J. Kelly by the Irish State is considered a shame by many who remember, or have studied, the Arms Crisis of 1970/71. Like me, they believe he was made a scapegoat, and therefore his name deserves to be vindicated, not only for the sake of his surviving widow, Sheila, and children, but also in the name of common decency, natural justice and national pride.
