After the killing of RIC Sergeant Maunsell at Macroom on Saturday 21st August, 1920 a lorry load of police, including the RIC County Inspector, drove to Macroom from Bandon the next morning to investigste the incident.
They passed through the village of Lissarda on the way. After this was noted a group of local volunteers made preparations to engage them on their return.
