Heroic Dead of West Cork.
The Casualty List of those members of the Third West Cork Brigade Column, I.R.A., who sacrified their lives for Irish Freedom.
The list gives rank and name, address, and date and place of death, repectively. In 1918, it was decided to form Cork into three Brigades, on a territorial basis.
The areas covered by the three Cork Brigades were:
Cork No 1. Brigade area extended from Youghal on the eastern sea-coast of the county to Ballingeary and Ballyvourney on the borders of Kerry in the west. Its southern limit was at Ballinhassig and its northern boundary at Donoughmore. The city was included in the Brigade area of Cork No. 1. There were two Battallions in the city and others were centered at Cobh, Donoughnore, Macroom, Ballinhassig, Ballingeary, Ballincollig, Carrignavar, Ballyvourney, Passage West and Youghal.
Cork No 2. Brigade covered the tract of country extending from Bally- noe, just north of Midleton, to the Kerry border west of Mill- street and Newmarket. It was bounded on the south by the Mushera mountains and on the north by the Limerick County Boundary. In the south east, the Cork No. 2 Brigade took in Glenville and Ahidillane. Battalions were centered at Fermoy, Castletownroche, Mitchelstown, Charleville, Mallow, Kanturk, Newmarket, and Millstreet.
Cork No 3 Brigade area extended from Ballinhassig to the west and south- west. Batallions were centered at Bandon, Clonakilty, Dunmanway, Skibbereen, Bantry and Castletownbere.

Below is a “recently discovered ” IRA internal document,” re Commandant Denis Barry and others, does the F.S. Army refer to Free State Army?? it does not seem possible as the document is dated January 1921, can anyone shed light on this? What does F.S. stand for?
