Liam Lynch remembered in Anglesboro

While he never attained the profile of his compatriots Eamon De Valera or Michael Collins, Liam Lynch was a very significant figure in both the War of Independence and the civil war that followed.

There can be no question of his legacy being forgotten as three separate commemorations are now held in his honour – Kilcrumper (Fermoy), Goatenbridge, Co Tipperary and Anglesboro, Co Limerick – the scene of last Sunday's commemoration.  

This event which was organised by members of the Hogan/Ryan/Lynch Cumann (Sinn Fein), recalled the short life and times of a man who was IRA Chief Of Staff at time of his death in April 1923.
