They included a snippet from the Cork Weekly Examiner about a William O’Connell who died in 1920. I recalled this monument that I had submitted to Irish War Memorials.
My first thought was that the size of the monument did not correspond with the press coverage of the time.
But the memorial was probably not erected until some years after his death.
That got me thinking as to press coverage at time of death and time of unveiling monument, and possible reasons for change – I do not have any answer, just a thought floating about upstairs……
