Pic shows a memorial stone just off Black Road immediately to the north of Knockeenatoung. The stone is in memory of Timmy Byrne, Tom Gannon and Dick O'Leary, who were members of the Abbeyshrule Aero Club, Longford and who died in the Galtys in 1976. I was curious to know more about this tragedy but my 'Googling' was unsuccessful. I presume these men died in a plane crash. Anyone know more?
