Rosscarbery RIC Barracks Attack, 1921

The Landscapes of Revolution Project are currently working with Cork County Council on a project to map the archaeological landscape of the 30 March 1921 attack on Rosscarbery RIC Barracks. It was led by Tom Barry only days after the engagement at Crossbarry. 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.

Extract from the Court of Inquiry into the deaths of Sergeant Ambrose Shea and Constable Charles Bowles as a result of the 1921 Rosscarbery RIC Barracks attack. The statement is that of RIC Sergeant Michael Millane (National Archives).
The Rosscarbery RIC Barracks Attack Mapping Project is funded as part of Cork County Council’s Decade of Centenaries Programme financed by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media. It is being delivered by Abarta Heritage as part of the Landscapes of Revolution Project.
