Mr Sean Russell I.R.A. unveiled a memorial cross and delivered an oration near the spot where the mutilated bodies of Patrick and Harry Loughnane (brothers) were found in November, 1920, at Carragaroe,(sic.) Kinvara.
The brothers were members of the Volunteers and were taken from home by the Black and Tans; their bodies being discovered in a pond some weeks later.
Members of the I.R.A. from many districts, including many old comrades in the Volunteers, paraded to the spot, where they formed a guard of honour and recited a decade of the Rosary in Irish.
