The city was the scene of several key events in the Irish War of Independence and Civil War, including a raid by the I.R.A. on British forces in Cork Harbour in 1919 which resulted in their first engagement with Michael Collins' flying column during that conflict, and a failed ambush attempt by anti-Treaty IRA men under Tom Barry against Free State troops at Kilmichael outside Macroomin November 1920 (the only real battle fought between those two sides).The city is built on both banks of the River Lee which splits into two channels at "The Shandon" where it is joined by its tributary river Blackwater to form an estuary leading into Cork Harbour; this harbour provides seagoing access for industrial and commercial shipping to provincial ports such as Cobh, Kinsaleand Ringaskiddywhich are all within 3 km (2 mi) from central Cork City Centre via lock systems along these rivers or through local canals e.g., Grand Canal Dock(formerly known as Victoria Quay), Albert Quay etc..
