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 https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=209706673428645354290.0004a9b164467968d5ff0&msa=0&ll=52.706347,-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!
