This is the only one that I have seen so far to commemorate a faction fight.
As to why it was considered appropriate to commemorate a faction fight, I do no know…..
Neither do I know but I do wonder whether Julia O’Callaghan was an innocent bystander or whether she considered herself as good a fighter as the males…….
“This plaque which was unveiled on the 30th June 1995 was ertected in memory of Maurice Corcoran, Jeremiah Coughlan, Charles McCarthy, Corneilius Ford, John Kerrigan, Julia O’Callaghan, John Desmond, John Hourihan,
John Walsh, Tom Delea and a man named O’Sullivan who lost their lives as a result of a faction fight which took place here in the village of Ballinhassig, during a fair day, on Monday 30th June 1845.”
