1690- The first siege of Limerick began.

1902- Edward VII was crowned King of Great Britain and
Ireland and Emperor of India. He still holds the record for longest heir apparent to the British throne (almost 66 years). Charles still has 6 years to go before breaking the record.

1922- The Free State Army occupied Clonmel. The IRA garrison fired the barracks before they withdrew south of the town. Corporal Kelly and Pte Thomas Uniacke, National Army were killed on the advance into the town. Pte Tommy Doyle was wounded while trying to recover Kelly’s body.

1941- Richard Goss, an IRA man from
Dundalk, was executed by the Free State government.

1971- Internment was introduced in Northern Ireland. Intelligence was out of date and just plain wrong so the British shot themselves in the foot.


1886- Samuel Ferguson, poet, died in Howth, Co. Dublin. He was born in Belfast in 1810.
