Civil War deaths — 3 Comments

  1. I spoke to the Archivist at the Military Archives an while back, and before the handover the FF in 1932 they had a gigantic bonfire.
    But I’d be very leery of fixing on totals in the current climate, and would tend to take earlier estimates.

  2. It would be interesting to know how many spots there were like the bog pond at Monaincha. Looking at the satellite view, I see there are two loughs there.

    (Sean Ross Abbey is very close by, a place with an even unhappier history)

  3. Well, you have Woodstock in Inistioge. But there was enough of it going on that Bill Quirke (afterwords a senator for FF) sent out a warning.
