Book launch

November 10, 2014

Local historian, Kevin McMahon will launch his new book ‘The Time of the Trouble’, in the O’Fiaich Centre, Cullyhanna on Thursday 27th November, commencing at 8.30pm.

The book is a compilation of local newspaper reports of events in south Armagh, south Down and Louth during the Irish Civil War and the War of Independence, 1919-1923. The political, economic and cultural state of Ireland, north and south, as it is now in the 21st century was brought about by the events, which occurred in this pivotal period in modern Irish history.

The book covers the main area of operations directed by the 4th Northern Division Old I.R.A. under its Camlough-born Commandant Frank Aiken. Everyone interested in the role of our local area in this important period of Ireland’s history should find this both an enlightening and informative event and everyone is cordially welcome.

Copies of the 600-page book can be ordered at the launch at a cost of £10.
