ON February 20, 1921, the Battle of Clonmult took place in East Cork.
Twelve IRA Volunteers were shot dead when the farmhouse they were staying in was surrounded by British Forces. Two more were executed later.
A major series of commemorative events had been planned for this weekend but the Covid restrictions meant these have had to cancelled.
A church bell ringing ceremony will take place at 5.20pm this evening to remember the fallen.
It was an old custom in Ireland that when a person died in the locality the local church bell would be rung to announce the sad news to the countryside all around.
