Landscapes of Revolution Project Workshop

The cottage in Clonmult where members of the 4th Battalion were trapped and killed on 20 February 1921. It represented the worse loss of life for the IRA during the conflict. They had withdrawn there following the Midleton Ambush, which had itself led to the first official reprisal of the War, the aftermath of which was filmed by Pathé (Imperial War Museum)

As the project gathers steam we have set a date for our first workshop, to take place in Midleton Public Library at 2pm on Saturday 17th December. The workshop will last in the region of 1-2 hours, and aims to show volunteers how to utilise online resources to uncover information about sites associated with the War of Independence in the area, as well as how we intend to record them. At the conclusion of the workshop there will be a walking tour of the Midleton Ambush.

Those who attend are under no obligation to volunteer for further stages of the project. Spaces are limited, so if you are interested please email us at landscapesofrevolution@gmail.com to have your name added to the list. We hope to see you there!
