Béal na Bláth Ambush, 1922

The Landscapes of Revolution Project are currently working with Cork County Council on a project to map the archaeological landscape of Béal na Bláth, Co. Cork, where Michael Collins lost his life in August 1922. Work on the project is ongoing and it is hoped that the map which will result from the work will become available at a later date.
