Plaque unveiled to volunteers who died in Islandeady Ambush 101 years ago
Islandeady Heritage Group has unveiled a plaque at the Memorial Cross in Cloonkeen in the parish.
On May 6, 1921, West Mayo Brigade volunteers Thomas O'Malley and Thomas Lally were tragically killed by the Black and Tans in what has become known as the Islandeady Ambush.
Exactly 101 years later to the day a plaque was unveiled in English transcribing the old Irish text from the memorial cross.
