Book Launch: On the 1st of March 1921, a group of farm boys and labourers armed with little more than attitude and a sense of defiance, were caught out in the open by a specialised British counterinsurgency patrol. Thomas Looby of Ardavaullane was killed instantly, Sean Hayes of Knockordan was mortally wounded and died 3 days later in Tipperary military hospital. Lieutenant Con Power of Shrough was seriously wounded, captured, and threatened with execution in Cork. However, a complete disaster was narrowly averted, and the rest of the party got away to safety. Two men with a connection to Caherconlish were involved. Michael Carroll of Lombardstown and Sean Hayes whose family lived in Highpark before moving to Lattin Co. Tipperary. On Saturday 11th Dec, the 100th year commemoration of the Ballynamrossagh ambush will take place in Lattin. The itinerary will be as follows: commence 5 PM at Lattin-Cullen GAA Hall with the launch of the book "The Ballynamrossagh ambush" by Peter O'Grady and P.J. Merrick. 7.30 PM evening mass in Lattin church circa 8 PM wreath laying at Lattin Grotto All are welcome and anybody that wants a copy of the book can contact P.J. Merrick at 0876505381
