There was a shot; after that everything is confusing – Presenter:  Shirley Marshall Monkhouse
It was 18 June 1831, a market day, and just a short walk outside the small town of Newtownbarry on the border of Co. Wexford and Co. Carlow in Ireland, when a musket shot was heard.  After that, things became confusing.  This event became known as “The Battle of the Pound.”  Shirley first learned about the affray in 2016.  She has since used the genealogical concept of “Context” research to make it easier to untangle the story and to understand its complex back history and the long-lasting outcome.
