The Gerald Keogh Series

Anzac Mick McHugh – reputed to have killed Gerald Keogh

This website hosted The Gerald Keogh Identity Series, a popular collection of features that ran online from 2015 to 2017. It consisted of 26 articles on identity and a three-part essay on Irish national identity. They have been removed from the site and their salient issues have been incorporated into a new book whose provisional (pre-publication) title is: Irish Identity Today

The GKIS was named after Irish Volunteer Gerald Keogh, granduncle of Raymond Keogh. Gerald was gunned down outside Trinity College Dublin on Anzac Day 1916 (see here). Mick McHugh (headshot above) was said to have killed Gerald.

Mick McHugh was the great-great uncle of Patrick and Gerald Keogh was the grand-uncle of Raymond.
