“Seán O’Hegarty – O/C 1st Cork Brigade, IRA”
Published by the Aubane Historical Society
by Kevin Girvin
A first and long overdue biographical study of Seán O’Hegarty, Officer Commanding, First Cork Brigade, Irish Republican Army, during the Irish War of Independence. O’Hegarty was one of the most effective military commanders in the Cork area during the period of greatest strain and activity from 1920 to 1921. A direct successor of Tomás MacCurtain and Terence MacSwiney, his significance has long been overshadowed by his martyred comrades.
As a leading member of the Irish Republican Brotherhood, the Irish Volunteers and the Irish Republican Army, Seán O’Hegarty’s life personifies the national independence movement. The quality of his leadership was an inspiration to those who served with him. His contribution to the struggle for national independence stands proudly alongside those of Tom Barry, Seán Moylan, and Liam Lynch.
‘Seán O’Hegarty was responsible more than any other individual for the aggressive and militant activities which placed Cork No.1 Brigade amongst the leading Brigades in Ireland’. Tom Barry
‘Seán O’Hegarty was a man whose leadership was an inspiration to us all, whose sense of honour and integrity was a shining example’. Florrie O’Donoghue

“Spies, Informers And The 'Anti-Sinn Féin Society': The Intelligence War In Cork City, 1919-1921”
Published by the Irish Academic Press (IAP)
by John Miller Borgonovo
His new book is a study of the shooting of suspected civilian informers by the Cork city IRA in 1920-1921. IRA sources claim some of the civilians were members of an Anti-Sinn Fein Society, a pro-British intelligence network operating in the city. The book analyses the existence of such a network, alleged IRA persecution of ex-soldiers, and the strength of the IRA intelligence efforts in Cork city. It places these trends in the context of both the British reprisal campaign in Cork city, and the IRA's guerrilla struggle.
The book contains significant original research that focuses on events in Cork city in 1920-1921. Chapters on the British reprisal campaign, the IRA intelligence network, and the trends of the conflict, provide unique evidence and conclusions regarding the situation in Cork city, which have not been published in any other work and directly contradicts some conclusions made in Peter Hart's "The IRA and its Enemies".
John Borgonovo is a writer currently living in San Francisco. His articles have appeared in various American publications, including the San Francisco Chronicle. He received a BA in History from the University of Oregon, and a Master of Arts from University College, Cork. Last year his book “Florence and Josephine O'Donoghue's War of Independence” was published by IAP.
