The Dunmanway killings were self defence claims Cork historian
THE controversial killing of 13 protestants in and around Dunmanway in 1922 were not, as has been portrayed, an act of sectarian violence but an act of self-defence.
That’s according to Cork history teacher Barry Keane and he says he has the evidence to prove it.
Thirteen Protestants were killed, was it retaliation for the killing of Commandant Michael O’Neill and the pogroms in Belfast?
Did British agents attempt to provoke a re-occupation of West Cork by the Essex regiment?
Was it an attempt ‘to exterminate and drive out all Protestants from the area’ as historian Peter Hart claimed?...
