During the Irish War of Independence the local branch of the Irish Republican Army (IRA) was active. On 25 April 1920, two members of the Royal Irish Constabulary (RIC) were ambushed and killed near Upton. One of these policemen was Sergeant Cornelius Crean from near Annascaul in County Kerry, the older brother of explorer Tom Crean. The Upton Train Ambush took place on 15 February 1921 also during the War of Independence.
