SHOOTING AT NATIONAL TROOPS AT EMMET PLACE

SHOOTING AT NATIONAL TROOPS AT EMMET PLACE

“In Cork, about nine last night a machine-gun was fired at National troops at Emmet Place, but there were no casualties. An hour later an attempt to snipe soldiers in Bridge Street [across the bridge from Patrick Street] caused the death of a sailor and the wounding of a girl. At half-past ten a bomb was thrown at National troops at the Gregg Hall, South Mall but without results”.  [source: Irish Examiner p.3, Friday 15 September 1922]

The sailor who lost his life was Edward Williams aged 18 from 15 Burley Street Liverpool who was serving on the Cork Steam Packet Company’s S.S. Kenmare as a wireless watcher was shot dead on the corner of Bridge Street Cork. Williams had left the ship with another young man, John William Cave of 8 Howe Street Liverpool, on Thursday night, as they were talking to some girls at the corner of Bridge Street a man emerged from a Public House and fire on Williams with a revolver. The Captain of the S.S. Kenmare stated that Williams had only joined the ship on Tuesday and this was his first trip to Cork.

OPENING SESSION

“On next Monday, the 18th of Sept., the Cork Municipal School of Music will re-open in the School of Art, Emmet Place. As may be seen from our advertisement column, the staff is now a highly efficient and complete one both as regards Gaelic and classical music. …Perhaps more important and more significant of the new musical life in our city is the fact that in spite of the difficult times, six musical recitals were given in Cork during the last session by the pupils and professors of the School, including a Beethoven and Chopin evening.

Being a municipal school, one would naturally expect that the best musical talent of the city would be attracted and fostered there, and, as a matter of fact, this municipal institution is to be congratulated on practically achieving the expected ideal for the coming session”.

The tradition of Cork School of Music recitals in the building of Crawford Art Gallery continues with the monthly ‘Music at Midday’ held the first Sunday of every month.
