Eddie Carmody Commemoration
Saturday 18th November at 8.30pm
Ballylonford, Co. Kerry


A commemoration for IRA Volunteer Eddie Carmody will take place on Saturday 18th November at 8.30pm, in Ballylongford, Co. Kerry. Starting at the Eddie Carmody GAA hall a march will take place to his monument in Ballylongford village. Two speakers will give orations on the night, Paddy White (Craobh Gal Gréine) and Gerry Mc Geough (Hibernian).

Volunteer Eddie Carmody was born in Moyvane, Co. Kerry and at a very young age moved to Ballylongford to work on a local farm. He was an outstanding Gaelic footballer and an all round athlete. He was a man of great courage, honesty and innate chivalry. He was one of the first local men to join Óglaigh na hÉireann becoming at first the Quarter Master of his local company and then a Lieutenant within the IRA. While on his way to an arms dump outside Ballylongford on the 22nd November 1920, he was ambushed by a patrol of Black and Tans. He was severily wounded after being fired upon several times, but still managed to struggle away a few hundred yards. The Saxons following his trail of blood found him after a brief search and dragged him onto the roadway, where he was kicked and beaten with rifle butts. After being stabbed by the soldiers bayonets in a frenzied attack he was shot several times in the face resulting in his death. His body was then put onto a cart and dragged through the village to the local barrack's, where he was left outside in a turf shed till his father collected his body the following day. Eddie Carmody was unarmed at the time of the ambushed and had he being in possession of a weapon would have fought bravely for the freedom of his country in attacking the occupying Crown forces. Eddie Carmody has been honoured every year without fail since 1920, a fitting tribute to a brave soldier of the Gaelic nation. All are welcome to attend his commemoration.

Republicans have turned celebrating defeat into an artform. Luckily, no one besides a few cranks turn up to these hatefests, armchair republicans basking in the glow of someone who actually put his money where he mouth was. Funny how most of these "commerations" are celebrated by people as far away from the troubles in Northern Ireland as they can get.

I had no problem with the commemoration - these happen all the time.

It's this bit that is barking nonsense. How many people actually constitute Reform apart from a few people who write letters to the Irish Times?

"Needs to be destroyed"? FFS get a grip and have a bit of confidence in your own position. How exactly is Reform to be "destroyed"? Youse wouldn't be the head-the-balls who put up photocopied posters around town after the passing of the referendum banning the death penalty claiming the Irish people had been "duped" into passing the measure?

Its a shame that racists are going to soil a Volunteer's memorial with their presence.

You are genuinely off your game.

This Gerry McGeough guy : wasn't he recently profiled as a right wing,ex-Provo, headbanger, would make the Taliban seem like the transgendered liberation movement ? I think the notice about the ceremony left out the info that the night would be rounded off with a gay disco in the parish hall !

And republican socialists regard Craobh Gál Gréine as a pathetic cult of ultra-conservative narrow nationalists who deserve nothing but our contempt. (and laughter)

I'm very uncertain of your agenda DOD? You seem to spend plenty of your time attacking Craobh Gal Gréine and attacking the Gaelic ethos of our society. Yet the agenda of your party has stepped beyond the bounds of all moral principles. You are quick to call us 'Rascists' yet your party is willing to make an alliance with the DUP to administer English rule in the six-counties. How can you say we are rascists and then eagerly make an alliance with the DUP who have terrorised the Nationalist people since the foundation of the Northern State, and who are openly sectarian and anti-Irish? Your party is willing to endorse the PSNI and become recruiting agents for them amongst the Nationalist population, which will be to our citizens detrement. Look at their track record (when named the RUC). Hundreds of murders, harrassment, terrorism, torture and the collusion in recent years of over 75 Irish Nationalists. Why is your party willing to become recruiting agents for the Crown Forces and to work hand in hand with MI5?

I think your reply shows all the classic signs of weakness. Who do you commemorate as a matter of interest? Were you in favour of the English army when they were terrorising the Irish people for generations?

Irish society isn't intrinsically Gaelic but of course according to ye everyone who isn't a tweed-wearing gaelgóir should be deported from our green and mystical emerald isle of Celtic royalty... :roll:
