My father, Paddy (Patrick Joseph) McCarthy, who died in 1972, had a medal for service in ‘A1 (University College Cork) Company, 2nd Battalion, Cork I Brigade, Oglaigh na hEireann (IRA) during the three months which ended on 11th July, 1921. His familiy was from Skibbereen. He was a student of engineering at UCC at the time. Is there some way I can find out a bit more about his life during that period?

Here is the photo. As I mentioned, his name was Daniel McGlinchy and was from Donegal. I have also have a transcribed copy of a book of poems he wrote. The first page says (in case this information helps):
The Pikemen of Erinn
Songs, Recitations, and Poems of the Gael
Dedicated to and in loving memory
of the Brave Boys of Easter Week, 1916
The Banners of Erinn
(Adjutant I.V. Anne St – Glasford)
IS GLASFORD IN SCOTLAND???
Any information you might have on date, or whatever, would be much appreciated!
