76th Anniversary of the Ballymanus Mine Disaster, 10th May 1943

It is 76 years since 19 men, including my mother’s uncle, were killed by a mine washed up at Mullaghduff / Ballymanus in the Rosses.

Here is a post on the disaster focusing on the excellent overview piece from the Donegal Heritage Blog

and here is a poem on the disaster, again via the Donegal Heritage Blog

Ar dheis Dé go raibh a n-anamacha
