This years Kilmichael Ambush commemorations will take place on Sunday 24th November . They begin with 10:30am Mass (as gaeilge) in St. Joseph’s Church in Castletown Kinneigh, with local choir. Prayers will follow at the graveside of those four patriots buried beside the church, namely: Michael McCarthy, Jim O’Sullivan, Patrick Deasy and Diarmuid Ó Mathúna.
Refreshments then follow in Cookie O’Callaghan’s hostelry just down the road. Then it’s on to the Ambush Site in Kilmichael for 1pm, where this year, Cork GAA’s FRANK MURPHY will deliver the oration. The Parkway Hotel Dunmanway is the venue for this years dinner, with ceol agus caint galore.
