What conflict does the old woman cause for the sniper?
Another conflict the old woman causes for the sniper: either he shoots to kill both the machine gunner in the armored car and the old woman or risk everyone on the enemy side knowing whose side he is on. However, the sniper incurs a risk when he does shoot; his position is given away immediately.Although he is shot as a result of his decision, the sniper eventually comes up with a plan to escape. Sadly, he finds out too late that his subterfuge has caused him to shoot his own brother. Whether the enemy sniper he has killed is actually his own brother, O’Flaherty does not say. However, both IRA snipers and Free-Staters once fought in the same Irish Army before the Irish Civil War: they were all brother soldiers at one time. The war has splintered old alliances and old loyalties.
