A Project Exploring Ireland's Conflict Archaeology, 1913-1923
Midleton Ambush, 1920
The Landscapes of Revolution Project has undertaken extensive work to identify, locate and promote the archaeological landscape of the ambush that took place in Midleton, Co. Cork on 29 December 1920. The attack, which occurred on the town’s Main Street, resulted in the deaths of three members of an RIC patrol, and led to the first official reprisals during the War of Independence. In addition to identifying the key elements of the site and engaging with the local community to uncover further details about the event, Landscapes of Revolution has also led a programme of interpretation at the site, which it is envisaged will lead to the installation of an interpretive panel in the near future.
