Organisers, under the leadership of Fianna Fáil councillor, Deirdre O’Brien, said they were delighted with the success of last Sunday’s elaborate ceremony to mark the centenary of Liam Lynch’s passing.
Hosted by members of the General Liam Lynch National Commemoration Committee, the event, which attracted pipe bands from home and abroad, drew a several hundred strong crowd to Fermoy for a march, which started from the town centre and ended at the Republican Plot in Kilcrumper Old Cemetery.
The graveside oration was given by Tim Horgan (National Graves Association). Mr Horgan said Liam Lynch was in the vanguard of the Irish revolution.
