Knocknagoshel

(4/5 based on a few reviews for 1 attraction)
Things to do: fun & games
Knocknagoshel, officially Knocknagashel, is a village in County Kerry, Ireland. According to the 2006 census, the population of the parish was 760.HistoryKnocknagoshel is a village in northeast County Kerry, close to the Limerick border and close enough to the Cork border. Knocknagoshel is a place remembered in Irish history for the extraordinary banner carried aloft by local men at a rally addressed by Irish politician Charles Stewart Parnell, in Newcastle West in 1891. "Arise Knocknagoshel, and take your place among the nations of the earth!" The banner-bearing of 1891 is today commemorated with a plaque on the gable end of a house in the centre of Knocknagoshel village.Just outside the village is a steeply inclined field, which in 1923 was part of Baranarigh Wood, where five soldiers of the Irish Free State National Army were killed by a booby trap mine on 6 March of that year during the Irish Civil War. The men killed at Knocknagoshel included three officers and two privates, one of whom was a local man. Lieutenant Pat O’Connor was targeted by the Anti-Treaty IRA because of his knowledge of the local IRA organisation and the men involved in it and because of the brutal manner in which he pursued the anti-treaty guerrillas. The soldiers were lured into the trap by false information about a Republican dug out in the area. The atrocity was to lead to a series of reprisals against the anti-treaty side; Free State troops killed 19 Republican prisoners in Kerry over the following two weeks (see Executions during the Irish Civil War).
