|The Tan War, Ballyovey, South Mayo - Michael Lally||| Print ||
|Tuesday, 02 December 2008|
Tom Lally was motivated to give an account of the fight against the Black and Tans to ensure that those who dedicated themselves to the fight would be remembered, saying, "It would be a shame and a disgrace if these names were to be forgotten". Illustrating his work with a wealth of material, from photographs to lists of combatants to reproductions of statements made following the action, Michael Lally has indeed done justice to his father's wishes. He has ensured that all those who took part in the ambushes at Partry and at Tourmakeady have had their stories told and their memories honoured.
