About: This short three-page article describes the circumstances surrounding the worst single episode of loss of life suffered by the Irish Defence Forces since the Irish Civil War. It also highlights the trauma and tribulations of the survivors, most of whom sustained life-changing injuries. A large basalt memorial, near Seskin Bridge, now commemorates the sixteen soldiers who died in the Glen of Imaal on that fateful day on September 16th, 1941.
