Historian Barry Keane is currently researching the 1916-1923 period in Cork, examining all of those who lost their lives during this pivotal period in Irish History, incorporating 1916 and indeed the War of Independence and Civil War. Barry's research will then be made available on a new bespoke website and will also possibly form the basis of a publication. To date, Barry has investigated the details of over 730 people who lost their lives, and is now seeking the input of local groups and individuals that may have photos/portraits that they could share with Barry for use in the website/book. So far approximately 150 photographs have been collated, these relating mostly to the more well known names. If you have any old family photograph of someone who lost their life during this struggle for independence, that you would like to see included in the website/publication, please contact Barry Keane, Glendalough Park, Cork, by or by phoning 087-7903436. This research will of great benefit to the County of Cork and Cork County Council's Heritage Unit is very supportive of it. In relation to any photographs for use please note that formal permission for their use in the website/book from the owner of the photograph is required. Any and all information would be greatly received by Barry and please pass these details on to anyone you know that might have relevant photos or indeed an interest in the project.
