‘When Crowbar & Bayonet Ruled’

Michael and Jim O’Connor will discuss the content of their recently relaunched book, ‘When Crowbar & Bayonet Ruled’. The study contains detailed accounts of the monster political meetings that took place in Mayo, as well as the infamous trial at Ballyglass and Castlebar of the Tully Five, in 1901, for coercion. The rise of nationalism, the role of the police, media and clergy are also examined.
