A memorial to two Limerick men murdered by Crown
Forces which was removed by Limerick County Council
during roadwork is being restored on Sunday 21st May
in a ceremony at the Cross of Grange on the main Limerick
to Tipperary Road.

Michael Blake and James ONeill were murdered by Crown
Forces in 1920 and no one was ever brought to justice for the
crime according to local historian Des Long who is chairman
of the committee organising the event.

These innocent men were gunned down by the Black and
Tans and a memorial erected to their memory was removed
by the local authority during road work in the area, he said.

We contacted the County Council in a bid to trace the memorial
and through the efforts of Councillor Eddie Wade it was agreed
that a new monument would be erected.

The new memorial will be unveiled on Sunday 21st May by
well known County Limerick speaker Seamus OSuillabhain
whose family were active in the War of Independence in the
area. Historian Tom Toomey will address the gathering on the
events leading to the murder of the two men and a wreath
will be laid by Joe Lynch, the chairman of Limerick Republican

The ceremony takes place at the Gross of Grange on the
main Limerick to Tipperary Road at the junction with the road to
Cappamore. We assemble at the cross roads and march to the
spot where the men were murdered for the unveiling at 3 oclock.

We would like to invite the general public to attend and to
hear the address by Tom Toomey who at present is researching
and writing a History of the Limerick IRA during the War of Independence.
