The priest, his teenage girl and the 1923 IRA assassination of small-town Irish doctor Paddy Muldoon

At 10:15 pm on the balmy spring night of 18 March 1923, 31-year-old Dr Paddy Muldoon and his 70-year-old neighbor Edward Geelan were returning from their weekly Sunday evening card game with local Catholic pastor Canon Michael Masterson in the small Leitrim market town of Mohill .

Just as the two companions were about to part ways near their homes, three men in trench coats emerged from the darkness and a gunman opened fire on Dr Muldoon, killing him with a single shot before he fled.
