    The " Bandon Valley Massacre " ( April 1922 Revisited ) Lecture by John M. Regan.

    There are multiple threads on this I know, but some posters have quoted Dr. Regan so I thought I'd post this here in the Cork section so that anyone interested can come along.

    Please note : the parenthesis are those of either the organisers or Dr. Regan, so don't pile in on me !!

    Dr. John M. Regan, University of Dundee



    The ‘Bandon Valley Massacre’ (April 1922) Revisited’



    Ballroom of the Imperial Hotel, Cork

    2.30 pm, Saturday 28th April, 2012



    Chair: An t-Ollamh Seán O Coileáin

    Discussion facilitator: Dr Hiram Morgan

    Respondent: Dr Andrew Bielenberg



    John Regan’s article on the issue is available here:

    'The 'Bandon Valley Massacre' as a historical problem' artcle (john regan) - Academia.edu



    Event sponsored by Dúnlaoi Teoranta and the University of Dundee (registered Scottish Charity No: SC015096)

    At his last lecture Dr. Regan was quite scathing about " amateur historians " in the context of this subject.
    Hopefully John. A. Murphy will be there to say that nothing much happened, because his father was in the Cork Brigade and would never have been involved in sectarianism.

    and Murphy will probably also say again that his forebears were no mean people, withstood centuries of oppression, hardship, vilification etc and still came through.

    This really doesn't deserve another thread.
    Fr Hank Tree's thread was about this very lecture.
