The Gaughan Stagg Cumann remember with pride Vol Terence MacSweeny, Brigadier of the No. 1 Brigade, Cork IRA and Mayor of Cork.

At his inaugural acceptance speech for the office of mayor of Cork, MacSweeny stated; Our first duty is to answer that threat in the only fitting manner by showing ourselves un-terrified, cool and inflexible for the fulfilment of our chief purpose— the establishment of the independence and integrity of our country— the peace and the happiness of our country.

We, taking up the work left incomplete, It is not we who take innocent blood but we offer it, sustained by the example of our immortal dead and that divine example which inspires us all for the redemption of our country. Facing our enemies we must declare our attitude simply. We ask for no mercy, and we will make no compromise
Republicans today have a duty to complete what MacSweeny vision of a nations people free to control its natural resources as a sovereign people
RIP: Vol Terence MacSweeny, Brigadier of the No. 1 Brigade, Cork IRA and Mayor of Cork.28 March 1879 -25 October 1920.
WITH MANY THANKS TO : Gaughan Stagg Cumann
