Photos from the Irish Volunteers Cork River Lee Event

/, Past Exhibitions/Photos from the Irish Volunteers Cork River Lee Event

We had a good day on Friday last at the River Lee Hotel in Cork for the Irish Volunteer lecture and exhibit.

Thanks to all who attended and a special welcome to all the new members. Please see below some pics of the event.

Included in the photos is the posthumously awarded IRA service medal to Commandant Dennis Barry of Cork who died on hunger strike in 1923 and is buried in the Republican plot in St. Finbarr’s cemetery in Cork. Dennis Barry, his nephew, brought the medal in on the day, and we will be doing an article on Commandant Barry in the near future.

    Great pics

    Hopefully your organisation will be contacting other offspring who are the last direct connection w/ the Volunteers of 1916-1923. Men who, for the most part, were extremely reticent about discussing their roles in the struggle.

    There is much information and written material that has yet to see the light of day.

    Having Padraig Og and Terry O’Reilly as members certainly adds validity to what you are seeking to accomplish.
