Fian Seamus Courtney O/C Fianna Eireann,Cork,
he died as the result of the ill effects of a hunger strike while he was in jail for illegal drilling in 1919. ” Seamus Courtney was arrested in 1917 and lodged in Cork jail where he went on hunger strike. This undermined his health and on his release his health broke down completely and he died. He was buried at Passage with full military honours. In 1921, the Fianna were re-organized into Battalions and Brigades along the same lines as the Volunteers.” The first photo is Seamus and the others are the present condition of his grave in Passage West Old Cemetery”,Cork.
