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.
