This month is one of the bloodiest in the War, with several reprisals and ambushes. The largest ambush at Crossbarry took place on the 19th of March. The IRA continued their campaign against spies and informers, and the infamous killing taking place in Cork of 59 year old Mary Lindsay and her driver James Clarke. Violence took place in every province of Ireland this month.
