Harry Boland was the best man at the wedding of Con O’Donovan and Agnes Monks. While they were on honeymoon he was shot, unarmed, by Free State soldiers attempting to arrest him, and he died a few days later of his wounds. He was on the Anti-Treaty side in the Civil War. More in this Wikipedia article (including that he was played by Aidan Quinn in Michael Collins).
