Click on image to enlarge.

A meeting was held in Cork on April 16th 1922 by representatives of Na Fianna Eireann in the Munster area. They had gathered to debate the ‘Treaty’. Following heated discussions they voted to reject the ‘Treaty’ and subsequently fought on the anti-Treaty side in the Civil War. Two delegates from Fianna GHQ in Dublin attended; Barney Mellows and Corkman Frank McMahon (both pictured front centre with Fianna flag resting on their knees). Others of note in this great image are Thomas Dargan, Kevin Bradshaw, Joe Cowe and James Wickham.
