Between 1919 and 1921, approximately 1,400 people died in the struggle for an independent Irish republic. Cork city and county saw the bloodiest of the fighting: in total, 528 people (civilians, Irish Republican Army and British Forces) lost their lives directly due to the conflict in Cork.
For the first time, through McGrath’s photography and accompanying texts, we can see the full extent of the lives of the people and the places in the city where they perished during the struggle for freedom in Ireland’s War of Independence.
The exhibition is kindly supported by The Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media under the Decade of Centenaries 2012-2023 initiative and Cork Public Museum. This exhibition is currently online.
