Jamie Moynihan had the unique distinction of being officer commanding the group of Volunteers who carried out the FIRST armed attack on crown forces in Ireland during the War of Independence, at the Mouth of the Glen, in Muskerry, on 7 July 1918, and also of the volunteers who carried out the LAST armed attack of that war, at Ceim Carraige, Carriganima, at 3pm on the day of the Truce, 11 July 1921. This is a gripping and detailed account of the War of Independence in Muskerry and in the Mid-Cork area that will capture the imagination of the reader. It covers many events not detailed elsewhere, including the hijacking of 'Sliabh na mBan' - the armoured car in which Michael Collins was later shot - and the Battle of Ballyvourney, the Rath attack and the burning of the courthouse. It also includes a detailed account of Cumann na mBan in the region, several statements by some of the key participants in events of the time and details of the intelligence and communication systems and chain of command used by the rebels.It has been compiled from Moynihan's extensive records of the time and will be of huge interest to anyone wanting to find out more about this turbulent time in Ireland's history.
