Join Lorcan Collins for a discussion on the Battle of Clonmult in February 1921 when the East Cork Flying Column of the IRA were surrounded in a farmhouse. A fierce fight ensued in which five IRA Volunteers were killed. After the IRA surrendered seven of the prisoners were murdered at point blank range. Later two of the prisoners were officially executed. A total of 14 IRA Volunteers lost their lives as a result of this one battle during the Tan War.
