A history surrounding the re development of the Kilmichael ambush site is below,at the very end we have photo’s from Veronique  showing the ambush site as of August 2014,it has been a project that has caused controversy.Historical sites must be treated with respect and proper procedure should be enforced on developers,at all times the developments must be studied critically and at each stage particular stage reports filed.In  It should never be the intention by developers of historical sites to reinterpet the meaning of an original commemorative site.

There are proposals to have commemorative plaques to the British Auxilaries and believe it or not a replica crossley tender installed at the famous Kilmichael ambusth site in Co Cork. Is this site, where men died in combat (no matter the army of service) to be a gaudy interpetive centre and Disney like theme park ? See below two letters referring to this critical situation. We have been forwarded these letters concerning same as below, if anyone can verify that this is indeed  the actual case  please let us know so we can clear up the matter. ,
