TODAY IN IRISH HISTORY

1875: County Kerry born John Francis O’Sullivan was awarded the Medal of Honor. The Citation read: The President of the United States of America, in the name of Congress, takes pleasure in presenting the Medal of Honor to Private John Francis O’Sullivan, United States Army, for gallantry in a long chase after Indians on 8 December 1874, while serving with Company I, 4th U.S. Cavalry, in action at Staked Plains, Texas.

1994: Loyalist para-military groups announce ceasefire in Northern Ireland. Loyalist leader Gusty Spence who had been convicted of killing a Catholic barman in 1966 read a statement on behalf of the Combined Loyalist Military Command consisting of Ulster Volunteer Force, Ulster Defence Association and the Red Hand Commando stating that the command would “cease operational hostilities.”  The move came after a similar announcement by the IRA seven weeks previously.
