BLAKE/O’NEILL COMMEMORATION
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The site of possibly the most successful operation by
the IRA during the war for national liberation against
Crown Forces at Dromkeen is not marked by any memorial,
a commemoration in County Limerick was told on
Sunday 21st May.

Addressing the gathering at the Cross of Grange on the
main Limerick to Tipperary Road to unveil a restored
memorial to two Limerick men murdered by Crown
Forces, the chairman Des Long said that any other
country would proudly mark such a historical spot.

“There is no memorial to the events that took place
at Dromkeen where Crown Forces suffered their
second heaviest casualties during the War of Independence,”
he said. “Also the memorial to Captain Michael
Danfort is now buried in the Crossagalla Business
Park and one to Henry Clancy at Ballysimon is now
threatened by development.

“As Irish men and women we have a duty to ensure that
the efforts of all those who endeavoured to establish the
32 County Republic are not forgotten.”

The memorial to Michael Blake and James O’Neill was
unveiled by Seamus O’Suillabhain from Broadford and
a wreath was laid by Joe Lynch from Limerick.

Historian Tom Toomey said that O’Neill and Blake were
exonerated by their own courts of justice “but they were
then done to death on a lonely country road without a shred
of evidence against them….such was Crown justice at the time!”

The original memorial to Blake and O’Neill had been lost during
road works and the new stone monument was provided by Limerick
County Council following representations by Cllr. Eddie Wade.

That's not a large crowd. Its a small crowd. A large crowd is what turned up in Limerick the same day to welcome home the Munster team that the day before became European champions in a sport that was invented in an English public school and which Crown Forces are generally credited with introducing and popularising in the Limerick area.

The crown forces iinflicted a lot of things on our country during the imperial occupation - bringing that shit game with them was one of their less murderous crimes.
