Between 1919 and 1921, almost 1400 people died in the struggle for the recognition of an independent and free Ireland and included members of the British Forces, the Irish Republican Army and the general public.
Cork and its county saw the bloodiest of the fighting, in total 528 people lost their lives directly due to the conflict. Beyond the recognised memorials to the volunteers and major landmarks of significance, there are many more sites where men, women, children and members of the British forces lost their lives and are not acknowledged or marked in any way.
Dara McGrath's photographic focus on these overlooked and unmarked sites give a timely, unnerving presence and look to reassert these lost lives into the history and its interpretation of this troubled time during the Decade of Remembrance.
