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.
