ECHOES FROM A CIVIL WAR: Book Launch By Joe Queally

ECHOES FROM A CIVIL WAR: Book Launch; By Joe Queally; ON Friday night 29 October 2021.

 

Echoes from a civil war is a true story of two members of An Garda Síochána who
were killed in North and West Clare in 1925 and 1929. The new book publication,
‘Echoes from a Civil War’ telling the story of the killings will be launched on Friday
night 29 October, at the Courthouse Gallery in Ennistymon at 8.00 pm.


The launch will feature an exhibit of materials similar to those used on the night of
both killings, the slug cartridges used in the Fanore ambush and the materials used
in the making of the ‘booby trap bomb’ in Tullycrine.

 

There will be a half-hour documentary film, ‘The Banner Bomb’, commissioned by

RTE Scannal team who came to Tullycrine to re-enact the story of what became

known all over the country the ‘Tullycrine box bomb’. The Courthouse Gallery

launch will be by North Clare native from Gortaclare, Bellharbour, former Chief

Superintendent of An Garda Síochána, John Kerin.

 

An open invitation to one and all to come out to share in the stories from the past

and to ask questions and hopefully find answers to what happened nearly one hundred

years ago in North/ West Clare. Doors will open one hour before the launch to allow time

for people to view the exhibits.
