Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Carnew Massacre was the summary execution of 38 prisoners being held as suspected United Irishmen by the local garrison in the British army barracks base of Carnew Castle, Carnew, County Wicklow, Ireland on 25 May 1798. By the morning of the 25 May, news of the long-expected outbreak of the 1798 rebellion in neighbouring County Kildare and of military losses in the battles of Ballymore-Eustace, Naas, and Prosperous had reached the garrison in Carnew, who decided to take preventative measures by assembling the rebel suspects in detention, who were marched from Carnew Castle to the local handball alley and executed by firing squad as a warning to the local populace.show more
