Boys of the County Cork

Today marks the 100th anniversary of the War of Independence. Congratulations to the Presentation National School who marked the anniversary with a wonderful rendition of the Boys of the County Cork:

While it was not clear in the beginning of 1919 that the Dáil ever intended to gain independence by military means, and war was not explicitly threatened in Sinn Féin’s 1918 manifesto, an incident occurred on 21 January 1919, the same day as the First Dáil convened. The Soloheadbeg Ambush, in County Tipperary, was led by Seán TreacySéamus RobinsonSeán Hogan and Dan Breen acting on their own initiative. The IRA attacked and shot two RIC officers, Constables James McDonnell and Patrick O’Connell, who were escorting explosives. Breen later recalled:

…we took the action deliberately, having thought over the matter and talked it over between us. Treacy had stated to me that the only way of starting a war was to kill someone, and we wanted to start a war, so we intended to kill some of the police whom we looked upon as the foremost and most important branch of the enemy forces. The only regret that we had following the ambush was that there were only two policemen in it, instead of the six we had expected.[33]

This is widely regarded as the beginning of the War of Independence.  [read more …] “Boys of the County Cork”

A wonderful annual Millstreet tradition on Presentation Day (21st Nov. 2018) was superbly upheld today when the children from Presentation N.S. splendidly enhanced the liturgy of the 10:00 a.m. Mass with their truly exquisite singing and music.  This was followed by the placement of a special wreath in the Cemetery of the Presentation Sisters near the Church Grounds where a special hymn in honour of Nano Nagle who founded the Presention Sisters Order was sung by the 34 sixth class pupils.   Staff members from Millstreet Community School and Sr. Eileen of the Presentation Order also attended the annual celebration.
