About this product
- DescriptionWhere Mountainy Men have Sown gives a first-hand account of the fight for freedom in West Cork from 1916-21. It chronicles the social and military aspects of the War of Independence and describes the IRA's activities in the area, from Macroom to as far west as Ballingeary and Coolea, and covering Inchigeelagh to Ballyvourney and the Derrynasaggart Mountains. Micheal O Suilleabhain joined the armed struggle for freedom in his local area of Kilnamartyra at the age of thirteen and describes attacks on armed police patrols, barracks and a large-scale engagement against the elite of Britain's specially recruited fighting forces in Ireland - the infamous Auxiliaries - all ex-commissioned officers and decorated veterans of the First World War. This is a personal record of ambushes, etc., carried out by young Volunteers, who did t wait to be confronted, but went on the attack against better armed and trained men, and emerged victorious.
- Author BiographyMicheal O Suilleabhain was born in 1902 in Kilnamartyra, near Ballyvourney in West Cork. He took the Republican side in the Civil War.
