A new History Ireland podcast about the Limerick Curfew Murders.
On the night of the 6/7 March 1921, the Mayor of Limerick, George Clancy, his predecessor, Michael O’Callaghan, and IRA Volunteer Joseph O’Donoghue, were shot dead by an Auxiliary death squad lead by Maj. George Montagu Nathan.
(In an ironic twist Nathan was later killed in 1937 fighting for the International Brigade in Spain.)
How did these killings fit into the wider story of Limerick during the revolutionary decade?
Tune in *here* to History Ireland editor, Tommy Graham, in conversation with Brian Hanley, Helen Litton, John O’Callaghan, and Tom Toomey.
