Guerrilla Days in Tipperary


(1917-1923) Confined in Tipperary

by Christopher Power. Dec. 2011 ISBN:

It would have been very difficult for your Tipperary man for the post 1918 in Ireland not to become embroiled in the conflict which surrounded him. The war of independence dominated the area around Tipperary town to a degree difficult to imagine today. This occurred as a result of an interface between a hardline Irish nationalist fringe and a large British military garrisons of Tipperary which were a feature of the County. The local aspects of what would later be called the Irish War of Independence or the Black and Tan war would be said to have its beginning with the shooting by Michael O Callaghan, a prominent Gaelic League member, of the temporary IRA brigade, of two RIC officers in killross during Easter week of 1916. As can be summarized by this event the third Tipperary brigade was already in existence at this early stage. However the famous Soloheadbeag ambush of January 1919 is considered the actual opening act of the war of independence in this event occurred in close proximity to Tipperary town.
