Thread Name: Lyr Req: Dungannon '57 (from Dominic Behan)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: 'Dungannon'57' lyrics wanted
Brian, hope I diddn't sound too know-all-ish, there's so much I don't know. Unfortunately I can't check out Dungannon as I'm in the middle of moving house and all my books, including three histories of the IRA, are packed in sealed boxes. You may be intererested to know that there is a memorial to Fergal O'Hanlon and Sean South just south of Brookeborough where they died,inscribed in English and Irish, " This monument was erected in memory of Volunteer Feargal O'Hanlon (Monghan) and Volunteer Sean South (Limerick) who died at this spot on 1 January 1957 after an engagement with British forces at Brookeborough County Fermanagh".
