found no bodies inside. The remains of Sheehan and Keating were recovered during the afternoon; those of Monahan were not found until October. The bodies of Keating and Sheehan were brought to Killorglin Courthouse where an inquest was held on Easter Monday. Keating's remains were subsequently returned to his family. He was buried in Killovarngue Cemetery, Cahersiveen. Sheehan's remains were interred in Dromavalla cemetery, Killorglin. In October Monahan's remains were buried in the same plot.
After Easter Week, McInerney, Daly and Windrim were charged with being part of an insurrection and transferred to Frongoch internment camp in Wales, where they remained until a general amnesty was introduced in December 1916.
