'Henry Kelly (1894-1920): County Sligo's Forgotten Rebel' is a short biographical study of Volunteer Henry Kelly of Ballygawley, an Easter Rebel of 1916, who was executed by an RIC Auxiliary Raid on the Banba Hall, Dublin on the 17th of October, 1920, during the War of Independence. The author hoped to revitalise the life of a forgotten rebel, one of only a handful of Sligo natives to involve themselves in the 1916 Rising. Henry received no adulation, no recognition and no medals due to his early demise. The author wishes to rectify this tragedy with this publication. Proceeds of the book will go towards the resurfacing of Henry's weathered headstone in Kilross Cemetery, Ballygawley and towards an application for posthumous IRA medals due to him and his next of kin.
