From the Bureau of Military History Maire George has unearthed a Statement By Witness Nan Nolan of Laragh, Ballon concerning the activities of Ballon Company, Irish Volunteers, 1915 to Truce.

It’s very interesting and there must be people alive in the area that might add to the testimony and even have some pictures. If so contact Maire or the Web Guy.

With the anniversary of 1916  next year this will be of interest and incorporated in the 1916 memorial in the village.
