The first of a ten book series of titles on the Military History Of The Irish Civil War
The first in-depth study of the battle for Limerick city
The story of the vicious battle between Republican and Provisional Government forces for control of Limerick City in the early days of the Civil War. The Civil War arrived in Limerick with a whimper rather than a bang. Outnumbered and out-gunned, the Pro-Treaty Commander of the city, Michael Brennan, negotiated a truce with the Anti-Treaty Chief of Staff, Liam Lynch. But the benefit of this lull in fighting accrued almost entirely to the Pro-Treaty side. They gained time for reinforcements and weaponry to arrive and when they did, the city became a battleground of extreme viciousness. Several buildings were shelled by 18-pounder guns at point blank range. The fighting around the strand barracks was particularly heavy. Padraig O Ruairc offers a fresh perspective on the struggle that reduced the viability of the Republican's hoped-for Munster Republic and set the stage for the battle of Kilmallock which checked the pro-treaty rout that the initial stages of the Civil War had been.
