    To whom it condern.
    I have information on Patrick (Paddy) O`Rielly on certain things during the war of indiiependance and the civil war.
    My great grandfather, (Twomey) and grandmother, (nee` Glavin), lived in lower cork hill, Youghal.
    During the war, my g/grandfather was a grocer and my g/grandmother, as well as being a mother was also the town midwife. she died in 1978 but before she died, she told my grandfather some interesting stories from the period around the war, stories she keept secret all them years and only revealed them on her death bed, my grandfather in turn told me the stories before he died in 2006, my great grandparents was not involved in the struggle but was close to the O`Rielly family at that time, please contact me if you are interested and i dont think they will change the history books but they are a great insight to Paddy O`Rielly who is a true hero

    yours sincerly
