Sean Corcoran

On April 1, 1921, Sean Corcoran, O/C of the East Mayo Brigade, was shot dead by British soldiers after a short gunfight at Crossard crossroads (6 km north of Ballyhaunis). Sean Corcoran was a member of Mayo County Council and had twice been interred for his Republican activities. A high cross marks the spot where Sean Corcoran died and there is also a plaque in the chamber of Mayo Co. Council, in Castlebar in his honour.
