Signature uncovered possibly that of Liam Lynch

Writing believed to be that of the late IRA Chief of Staff, Liam Lynch was found in the attic of the building where Mellerick’s Pharmacy is currently located.

The building on Patrick Street, Fermoy once housed Barry’s Hardware where Liam Lynch worked between the years of 1915 and 1917, before taking up full-time active service with Óglaigh na hÉireann, the Irish Volunteers. 

Writing was recently found on the wall detailing the ‘1917 Present Staff’ under which a list of signatures can be found alongside their positions, one of which is believed to be the signature of Liam Lynch.
