Irish Volunteers Cork Corps- Membership 1913-1914

About the Forms

On 14 December 1913, at a meeting held in City Hall, Cork, the Cork Corps of the Irish Volunteers / Óglaigh na h-Éireann, was inaugurated. The leadership at the meeting included, for example, Tomás MacCurtain, Liam de Róiste, Diarmaid Fawsitt, J.J. Walsh, Seam O'Hegarty, and Eoin MacNeill. 

Liam de Róiste was the secretary of the Irish Volunteers in Cork and his personal archive, which was donated to the CCCA in the 1970s, contains over 1000 of the original membership forms signed by individual Volunteers. The forms contain name/signature, address, and date, and some also record the person's occupation. 

The full searchable digitisation of the Forms has been carried out with funding from the Cork City Council 1920-1923 commemorative programme, and the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media. (See Search below)
