Yes, true.  But the journal story posted an image of his MIC. Assuming correct - it is  5928 Royal Munster Fusiliers.

Yes indeed.

Some folk see life totally as black or white, they can't see the vast expanses of grey in between.

Pretty mild, I'd say (unless they've been moderated). You should see the Southern Daily Echo whenever there's an accident involving a cyclist.

 

Why don't they just ask the church who have his death penney if they want the medals?

The church has the plaque to another 'discovered' casualty named Sweetnam.
