"The first major confrontation between the volunteers and the British forces took place at Soloheadbeg in Tipperary on 1st January 1919 when Dan Breen and Sean Treacy attacked an explosives convoy. Two policemen were killed. This signalled the start of a guerrilla war that was to last until the Truce in 1921."
