SHIPPING TRIBUTE

“The flags of all ships in Cork port are flying at half-mast in respect to the late Mr. Arthur Griffith (died suddenly Saturday 12 August 1922). Such exceptional tribute testifies to the nation’s loss. Over public buildings in Cork city similar tokens of sorrow are manifested.”

[source: Irish Examiner, Wednesday 16 August 1922]
