In fact he seemed to spend as much time behind his own full back line as out in his centre back position.

But two minutes from the end he was injured in a collision with Aidan Walsh as he was catching a ball. Thankfully the injury’s not too bad … in a press release this evening the County Board have said:

2014-06-16 Monument at the site of the Rathcoole ambushOne of the largest ambushes of the War of Independence took place at Rathcoole, North Cork, situated between Millstreet and Banteer, on 16th. June 1921.

Therefore, a combined force of 130 men were mobilised to attack the Auxiliaries as they returned from Banteer. The volunteers were from the Millstreet, Kanturk, Newmarket, Charleville and Mallow battalion columns in the second division area and were under the command of Paddy O’Brien from Liscarroll.
