A monument to 8 men who were killed when 9 volunteers were tied together by Free State Army and a bomb placed in their midst. One was thrown clear and lived to tell the tale.

Very worthwhile to remember the atrocities that are committed in civil war....history repeats...different country...different continent. Interesting history on the sculptor. While you here....worth having a stroll around the nearby Ballyseedy Woods
