This chapter details the deaths of the people who died in Ireland in 1920. Some of these people were victims of targeted killings by the Irish Republican Army (IRA). On January 1, 1920, William Charles Forbes Redmond was transferred to the Dublin Metropolitan Police (DMP) from the Royal Irish Constabulary (RIC) in Belfast, to rejuvenate the Criminal Investigation Department. The IRA learned that Redmond was staying in the Standard Hotel on Harcourt Street because secure quarters in Dublin Castle were not ready. Redmond was shot on January 21, 1920. Meanwhile, Constable Luke Finnegan of the RIC was believed to be drawing up a list of IRA suspects. Finnegan, unarmed, was shot near his home on January 22, 1920. In reprisal, police wrecked fourteen houses belonging to prominent Sinn Féiners.
