Limerick & Tipperary War of Independence statements

This is brilliant - a series of War of Independence witness statements from Limerick and Tipperary, as recorded by the Bureau of Military History, are now accessible online via an interactive map at,-7.756348&spn=2.692679,4.938354.

My wife's grandfather's family was resident on New Street in Carrick-on-Suir at the time, and I've just found a statement from a John O'Keefe resident there - lots still to explore!
