The Irish War of Independence in Cork ... your comments
|Message||I am a grand-nephew of Ted, Jack, and Con Buckley of Kanturk, who according to these accounts were part of the Kanturk Men. Any information of their activities is of interest to their family in the USA.|
Thank you for the documentation and history.

If you are, as you say, referencing some of the information here, as opposed to articles in their entirety, you can if you wish mention this website. Most of the information contained here is in the general domain and none is, as far as I am aware, under copyright.
|Message||Hi, great website with excellent articles. I am currently writing a dissertation and would like to reference some of the information in your articles, is there individual authors for each article or should I just reference the website as a whole?|

|Message||Looking for information for Denis O'Mahony born in Lissarda November 11, 1895 and his connection with Erskine Childers.|
|Message||Would you know where I might be able to find out about Terence McSwiney's bodyguard. This was a group of Cork IRA who were going over to escort the body of McSwiney home. They were arrested on the ferry over. But I am struggling to find out more info. I believe some of the names were Batt Dunlop or Dunlap and a Ned or Ed Fitzgerald.|
|Message||In answer to your query The Bureau of Military History (1913-1921) is an excellent site, containing hundreds of witness statements, including many from Cork. (bureauofmilitaryhistory.ie/)|
A lot of the books listed under the 'books' section on this website can be obtained at Amazon or Abe Books for example.
Best of luck in your research!
|Message||For awhile now I have been interested in writing a fiction novel on the Irish War of Independence, specifically in Co. Cork (as that is where my family came from.) However, I have found rather quickly that I'm in some pretty uncharted territory. While certain areas/eras of history are well-documented and accessible to the majority of people, I have found this conflict hard to research. I'm relatively young and unfortunately probably won't be finding myself in Ireland any time soon. Any suggestions on where I should start? Thanks!|
