Mallow Barracks Raid, 1920

The Landscapes of Revolution Project are currently working with Cork County Council on a project to map the archaeological landscape of the 28 September 1920 Mallow Barracks Raid in Co. Cork, where Ernie O’Malley and Liam Lynch oversaw a successful operation to seize arms from the town’s military barracks. Work on the project is ongoing and the map which will result from the work will become available on the site at a later date.
