Battle of Knocknanuss

Editor: Liam Ferrie, The Irish Emigrant Ltd.  Week ending, Saturday, November 15, 1997

Ceremonies in Castlemagner last week commemorated the 350th anniversary of the Battle of Knocknanuss, the largest to take place in the province, and which saw the deaths of between 3,500 and 5,000 soldiers. Present at the ceremony were Lord Inchiquin of Dromoland, Co Clare, and Count MacDonald of the Glens in Scotland, whose ancestors led the opposing armies. A memorial to the battle and those who died there was jointly unveiled by the Rector of Mallow Rev. Tony Whiting and Fr Stephen O'Mahony parish priest of Castlemagner.
