The Scariff Martyrs

21 Nov 2021

Congratulations to Dr Tom├ís Mac Conmara of the Cork Folklore Project who discussed his recent book The Scariff Martyrs: War, Murder and Memory in East Clare with Dr Myles Dungan on The History Show on Sunday 21 November.  It was a riveting piece of radio detailing a terrible incident which happened on the bridge of Killaloe in 1920 when four men were shot by British Forces, who claimed they had attempted to escape custody. Locals insisted they were murdered. Listen back to the interview.
