“Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103

We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme – 14th Feb. 2021 at 7pm on C103.  (S.R.) 

In the immediate aftermath of the War of Independence and the signing of the Truce, it wasn’t victorious stories of Kilmichael, Crossbarry and Tooreengarive that were spoken of, but instead the IRA’s worst defeat in a single engagement. 

In the Battle of Clonmult on February 20th 1921, the IRA lost fourteen volunteers, seven of whom were shot dead after they had surrendered.  Two more were later executed.  A local community was traumatised and the East Cork Flying Column was no more. 

Join John Greene on this week’s edition of ‘Where the road takes me’, as we follow the sequence of events during the battle and the many strange decisions that led to it.  [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″
