    Default Eddie Carmody Commemoration

    Eddie Carmody Commemoration
    Saturday 18th November at 8.30pm
    Ballylonford, Co. Kerry


    A commemoration for IRA Volunteer Eddie Carmody will take place on Saturday 18th November at 8.30pm, in Ballylongford, Co. Kerry. Starting at the Eddie Carmody GAA hall a march will take place to his monument in Ballylongford village. Two speakers will give orations on the night, Paddy White (Craobh Gal Gréine) and Gerry Mc Geough (Hibernian).

    Volunteer Eddie Carmody was born in Moyvane, Co. Kerry and at a very young age moved to Ballylongford to work on a local farm. He was an outstanding Gaelic footballer and an all round athlete. He was a man of great courage, honesty and innate chivalry. He was one of the first local men to join Óglaigh na hÉireann becoming at first the Quarter Master of his local company and then a Lieutenant within the IRA. While on his way to an arms dump outside Ballylongford on the 22nd November 1920, he was ambushed by a patrol of Black and Tans. He was severily wounded after being fired upon several times, but still managed to struggle away a few hundred yards. The Saxons following his trail of blood found him after a brief search and dragged him onto the roadway, where he was kicked and beaten with rifle butts. After being stabbed by the soldiers bayonets in a frenzied attack he was shot several times in the face resulting in his death. His body was then put onto a cart and dragged through the village to the local barrack's, where he was left outside in a turf shed till his father collected his body the following day. Eddie Carmody was unarmed at the time of the ambushed and had he being in possession of a weapon would have fought bravely for the freedom of his country in attacking the occupying Crown forces. Eddie Carmody has been honoured every year without fail since 1920, a fitting tribute to a brave soldier of the Gaelic nation. All are welcome to attend his commemoration.

    Republicans have turned celebrating defeat into an artform. Luckily, no one besides a few cranks turn up to these hatefests, armchair republicans basking in the glow of someone who actually put his money where he mouth was. Funny how most of these "commerations" are celebrated by people as far away from the troubles in Northern Ireland as they can get.

    I had no problem with the commemoration - these happen all the time.

    It's this bit that is barking nonsense. How many people actually constitute Reform apart from a few people who write letters to the Irish Times?

    "Needs to be destroyed"? FFS get a grip and have a bit of confidence in your own position. How exactly is Reform to be "destroyed"? Youse wouldn't be the head-the-balls who put up photocopied posters around town after the passing of the referendum banning the death penalty claiming the Irish people had been "duped" into passing the measure?
    If you don't know, vote Tayto!
