  1. Hello,
    My name is Theresa Bridget Fistori Doherty. My mother’s name was Bridget Coffey Fistori and her mother’s name (my grandmother) was Mary Murphy Coffey from Cork City, Ireland. I have been told that I am related to Terence MacSwiney and am interested in learning about this relationship. I have been told that my grandmother was related to Muriel Murphy MacSwiney, Terence MacSwiney’s mother. Could you give me any information about this? Thank you.

      1. Came across your site today.Do you know the identity of the lone piper at his funeral?
        I’m told it was Sean O’Lionan(John Leonard) originally from Ballyhooly who was working
        in the London G.P.O at that time.He was my grandmother’s brother.
        Would appreciate any information.
        Thank you.

  2. Do you know is Terrence Mc Sweeneys IRA uniform to be viewed and where is it kept. Word of mouth in my own family was that a relative of mine Katie Birmingham carried Terrences uniform across Cork City. Are there any records of this available to see do you know?

    Kind Regards

  3. Hi Shelia,
    I would suggest emailing Cork City Museum in Fitzgerald’s Park, curator Dan Breen and enquire. I know that they have some archives from MacSwiney such as personal notebooks relating to formation of Irish Volunteers in Cork County.
    Best wishes in our research
