“We do the jobs we’re given…”
#1. Kathleen Sweeney (Annette O’Shea) aka The Bould Kathleen. A publican and proprietor of the local Republican hub. Tasked with assembling the squad and overseeing their training. Frequently patronised but a better fighter than any man. Foul of mouth and quick to draw, she’s here to fight for her freedom. Not a fan of loud noises. The Agent.
