Diarmaid L. Fawsitt Archive Section 1 Desc. List.


CORK’S UNPARALLELED CONTRIBUTION to the achievement of the nation’s independence, particularly in the 1919 to 1922 period, has meant a central role for the Council in recent years in commemorating the centenary of our revolutionary decade. Through the work of the Cork City & County Archives Service , and allied services, Cork City Council plays a major role in ensuring that local archives, and other heritage collections, are preserved, promoted and made accessible for research, education, and exhibition. It is wonderful to see the generous donation of the important personal archive of Diarmaid L. Fawsitt , which has made it a permanent public resource. Diarmaid was a key figure in Cork during the revolutionary period, and his newly accessible archive is a major contribution to our commemorations and to our local and national cultural heritage.

Lord Mayor of Cork City, Councillor Colm Kelleher
