In 2014 Rubicon Heritage Services Ltd were appointed by the Knockraha Area Historical & Heritage Society two undertake a desk-based assessment of a potential War of Independence-era bomb factory. Following consultation it was decided to undertake a full assessment of all the potential sites in the locality associated with the local IRA unit- “E” Company of the 4th Battalion, Cork No. 1 Brigade, IRA. Working with the local community, who had undertaken significant research into the revolutionary history of their area, a report on the Company landscape was produced (which you can read here) together with a series of maps of the area. Following the production of the report, the Society developed a local Independence Way with support from Cork County Council (you can find the website here).
