Introducing the Drummully Polyp or Salient…

Hat tip to Ciaran for this one… Strange maps is a peculiarly compelling site… This post concerns a peneenclave on the border called Drummully and home to 92 souls in 2006… it was subject to a question in the Dail, when during the troubles, the Irish Army had to use helicopters to fly its soldiers in to man check points on a road that had no direct ground vehicle access from the rest of the Republic… If you know more about the area its history and life there during the troubles, then let us hear below?
