The Kilmichael Ambush – November 28th 1920

The story of the Irish War of Independence

The Kilmichael Ambush stands as one of the most famous actions of the War of Independence but remains shrouded in mystery.

An audacious operation which boosted Republican morale and shocked the British government, debate continues over the false surrender alleged by Tom Barry and suggestions he had prisoners executed in cold blood.

While the truth is probably somewhere in the middle, it continues to cause controversy 100 years on.
