Charles J. Daly was brutally murdered by Crown Forces
Charles J Daly was a volunteer with the Irish Republican Army #IRA, his life was taken in 1921.
Daly was tortured while Under Arrest and his brutalised body was dumped in Vernon Woods. There is currently no memorial in #Cork to his memory, we had an opportunity to correct that.
Cork City Council ran a ‘Public Consultation’ to name the new footbridge from Vernon Wood into Tramore Park, we urged people to make online submissions, to name the bridge:
” Charles J. Daly Bridge “
Unfortunately this opportunity was missed and the bridge is to get the name ‘Vernon Mount’ – after the old landlord in the area.
City Hall is controlled by ‘West Britons’.
