Hello all, some photos from the Irish Volunteer Society Information & Display Stand at Cork Past Exhibition 2011. There was a good attendance and some very interesting stands. Jack Lane had an impressive display and there were very good Irish history related displays. Jim Fitzgerald, Pat Mulcahy and Robert McGrath from Knockraha, Co. Cork had a display featuring “Sing Sing Prison” and grenade manufacturing components. Well done to all.

Below are some photos.

    My great-grandfather James Mulcahy and his brother Thomas and his mother Johanna immigrated from the Glanmire area in 1850. I would like to get in touch with any Mulcahys in the vicinity. In 1979 when I visited the area, I found out from Barry’s service station that Pat Mulcahy and John Mulcahy lived in Knockraha, but didn’t have time to locate them. I would appreciate any Mulcahy’s answering me on my e-mail. Thank you.

    Great display thanks for sharing. On display two IVCC flags as well, I think they are so impressive.
