Gaza and Granard, both experienced revenge attacks from insurgents activities, bar Gaza is on a greater scale than anything the Black and Tans did. Thats Palestine in perspective.
Distant city, facing oblivion,
Native people, now in the way,
Resistance resisted, to be annihilated…
That was our towns on a now past day.
Granard burned, and Cork city,
Britain crushed a people who wished Ireland free,
They met their match, and failed to burn and crush
The Spirit and Village of Ballinalee!
