Memorial stone: Hi Colin, the stone is in memory of the three air men Tom Gannon, Jimmy Byrne and Dick O'Reilly. They were killed when their plane crashed not far from O'Loughlins Castle on the Galtees. The three were founding members of Abbyshrule Air Club. The crash took place on the 20th of September 1976. The crash site was located by an Air Corps helicopter, and the recovery of the three men was carried out by members of the Gardi, Army, Civil Defence, members from local hill walking clubs, and local people. This Crash led directly to the setting up of SEMRA "South Eastren Mountain Rescue Association" in 1977 see www.semra.ie for more history and info on the team.
The stone was erected by family members and friends (and permission was given by local landowners) on Saturday 28th October 2006, and unvaled on the 29th by three son's of the men. On the stone are lines from the poem "High Flight" by John Gillespie Magee a young pilot killed in WW2 "Oh, I have slipped the surley bonds of earth, Put out my hand and touched the face of God"
