Please see the first post on this subject for context and an explanation of the Bureau of Military History.
Valentine Jackson was a member of the IRB in the years before the 1916 Rising. He outlines how he had vague recollections of a man by the name of Buggy being a member of the central board of the Irish Republican Brotherhood. This man obviously did not make an impression on Valentine as he further adds that “Buggy…for instance disappeared early.” This person could be the James Buggy that former Irish President Sean T O’Kelly talks about in his witness statement, when discussing the members of the Supreme Council of the IRB.
James Brennan was a captain in the Third Battalion Kilkenny Brigade of the Irish Volunteers from 1914.-1921. One of the safe houses used by the Volunteers was that of Dick Buggy who lived at Gortnahile [presumably Gortahile, in Laois, on the border with Kilkenny to the east of Castlecomer].
