Ballinhassig

Ballinhassig is a village in County Cork, Ireland, situated 10.6 km south of Cork City just off the N71 Bandon road and near the source of the River Owenabue (Abhainn Bui, meaning "Yellow River").Traditionally an agricultural area, Ballinhassig has seen economic growth due to commuting, being within easy reach of Cork City and the many multinational chemical and industrial facilities located in the surrounding areas. This growth was matched by the construction of many new houses at the height of the Irish construction boom.HistoryThere are a number of prehistoric ringforts around Ballinhassig.Mountjoy, the Lord Deputy of Ireland, camped locally with his army of 4,000 troops on the night before the Battle of Kinsale in 1601.On 30 June 1845, 11 people (10 men and 1 woman) were reportedly killed by the Royal Irish Constabulary during a riot in the village.During the War of Independence there were a number of actions in the area, including on 3 February 1921, when the Irish Republican Army (IRA) ambushed and killed three Black and Tans on the Tulligbeg side of the village in what was known as the Toureen Ambush. That night the Black and Tans retaliated by burning much of the village and homes in the Ballinaboy area, and arresting and imprisoning a number of local citizens.
