Belfast IRA Volunteers

by Paul G Nolan:

This is the Celtic cross that marks the Harbinson plot in Milltown cemetary Belfast. It is the final resting place of Lt General Joe Mc Kelvey. Also of interest it is the resting place of Sean Mc Cartney section commander Belfast flying column killed by Crown forces in an ambush at Lappinduff mountains May 1922. The Belfast fliying column were sent for training and various reports puts their numbers at 12-50. The British numbers vary greatly between 200-300, regulars, auxiallaries etc, would someone be able to confirm accurate numbers.
