Cork’s War of Independence Fatality Register


James DonnellyProfessor Emeritus James Donnelly in collaboration Dr. Andy Bielenberg (University College Cork) recently completed work on a large electronic database that analyzes the political violence of the Irish War of independence (1919-21). The database records the circumstances of the deaths of the 528 persons--British soldiers, policemen belonging to the Royal Irish Constabulary, IRA men or Volunteers, and civilians--known to have been killed during the conflict. Cork’s War of Independence Fatality Register is available to the public as a part of the extensive digital history resources available through theirishrevolution.ie
