Tojo was the beloved monkey mascot and crew member of T’aint a Bird, an American Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress. The bomber made an emergency landing at Clonakilty in 1942, on route from Morocco to England. Sadly, Tojo died, reputedly due to the hospitality of the locals, was given an Irish wake and buried with full military honours. Today a bronze statue of Tojo at O’Donovans Hotel commemorates this unusual event.
