A Peerless armoured car and Lancia APC are being loaded onto the deck and sandbags have been stacked along the waist in anticipation of resistance in Cork. © George Morrison Commandant Michael Hogan left Co. Clare and crossed the Shannon with 250 men at Kilsrush in fishing boats to reinforce Daly's position. The landing was one of the nails in the coffin of Deasy's defence of Kilmallock. The real blow fell some six days later when Dalton embarked 800 men, two field guns, three armoured cars and several Lancia armoured personnel carriers on the SS Arvonia, SS Lady Wicklow and SS Alexandra, which were commandeered in Dublin on Monday 7 August for the purpose of invading Co.

As a result of the outbreak of violence in Dublin both Brennan and Lynch made some attempts to defuse the situation in Limerick. On 7 July they negotiated a truce, much to the chagrin of Republicans in Munster who believed that it would give the pro-Treaty forces time to consolidate their positions in the city. On 11 July the truce broke down at 7pm when 150 fresh NA reinforcements arrived in the city and Brennan ordered his men to attack the IRA forces garrisoning the Ordnance Barracks. Lynch withdrew to Clonmel and ten days later General Eoin O'Duffy with a further 1,500 men, four armoured cars and a field gun arrived to reinforce Brennan.

By 5 July one side of O'Connell Street was in flames from St. Mary's Pro-Cathedral to Findlater Place. By late afternoon the only Republican troops left were under the command of Cathal Brugha. Faced with a hopeless situation he ordered his remaining 15 men to surrender and then with suicidal courage ran into the street, gun in hand. The outcome was inevitable and he died of his wounds later that evening in Mater Hospital. It was estimated that £3m-4m of damage had been done to central Dublin with a butcher's bill of 65 killed and 281 wounded, which compared to the casualties of Easter week 1916 meant that both Dubliners and the combatants had come off lightly.
