We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme – 13th Feb. 2022 at 7pm on C103. (S.R.)
Where The Road Takes Me – Sunday 13th Feb.
Because of our historical past, this year is significant and bound to be a year of commemoration and in certain cases celebration.
Because of Covid-19 restrictions and lockdown, many centenary events were cancelled last year, but will be carried over to this year.
One such event will be the Battle of Clonmult – the 101st anniversary of which falls on Sunday week, February 20th.
On this week’s edition of ‘Where The Road Takes me’, John Greene looks back at the IRA’s heaviest defeat in a single engagement, during the War of Independence.
An informer, complacency, a catalogue of errors and strange decisions, a total disregard for the rules of war and illegal court-martials, all contributed to a battle that virtually wiped out the East Cork Flying Column and left deep scars on the local community, for years afterwards.
‘Where the road takes me’ can be heard on C103 this Sunday evening at 7.
