The Fermoy Army Riots
(The War of Independence VIII)
In this episode we move south to the Cork town of Fermoy. While most clashes in the war to date have seen the IRA pitted against police constables, this episode will see British Army soldiers enter the fray. These battle hardened veterans from the First World War pose a very different threat to Royal Irish Constabulary. The show also introduces some famous figures including Liam Lynch arguably one of the most influential IRA commander during the war and also Winston Churchill.
