I was just reading about Joseph and James Tormey when researching my GG Grandfather's older brother Joseph Tormey. (Our name was changed to Toomey when they left Ireland and came to America.)
This site describes the family of 10 boys and 1 girl.
While searching Clonmacnoise graveyard Crown Forces found the body of James Tormey. James Tormey had been killed in action on the 2nd of February 1921 while fighting British Forces at Cornafulla, County Roscommon and his body secretly buried in Clonmacnoise graveyard, a brass plate on the coffin was engraved ‘James Tormey killed in action February 2nd 1921’. The body was removed to Custume Barracks Athlone where an inquest was held, the body was released to his parents and he was buried in Mount-Temple cemetery in the family plot. He was from a family of 10 boys and 1 girl, six of the boys were members of the I.R.A. and the family home was used to store arms during the War of Independence. One of the sons, David, was captured by the Black and tans on the 14th of February 1921 and was almost beaten to death, his father stated his son was saved from death by the intervention of Inspector Cowley of the R.I.C. Brigadier (Colonel) James Tormey was born in 1899 and served with the Athlone Brigade, 1st Midland Division, I.R.A. He was from Moate, County Westmeath. He was born in 1899 and had been a member of the I.R.A. since before 1918. His brother Joseph Tormey was shot dead in Ballykinlar Camp, County Down on the 17th of January 1921.
