“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 – 25th April 2021 at 7pm on C103.  (S.R.)

 Where The Road Takes Me

Next Wednesday April 28th is the centenary of the executions of four IRA Volunteers at what was then Victoria Barracks in Cork.

Patrick O’Sullivan and Maurice Moore who were arrested during the Clonmult ambush in East Cork, were executed with Patrick Ronayne and nineteen year old Thomas Mulcahy who were arrested at Mourneabbey five days earlier, during the War of Independence.

On ‘Where the road takes me’ this Sunday evening, John Greene  looks back at the Mourneabbey ambush and discovers that…… 

* The IRA had no escape plan.  (53 men –  made up from The Flying  Column and local volunteers)

* The unexpected arrival of the Manchester regiment confused the    Lancashires and allowed the Flying Column escape.

* The Black and Tans who were stationed nearby in Mallow were not  allowed to take part and why the British Railway Worker’s Union  were threatening all-out strike if they did.

* A spy was eventually identified and hunted, not only by the IRA, but  later also by ‘Free Staters’ during the Civil War.

The first of six casualties on the Local Volunteer side was Michael Looney who was shot twice on different occasions and died seven days later.  His nephew tells us exactly what happened. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″
