Forgotten Lord Mayor: Donal Óg O’Callaghan, 1920-1924
100 years ago, Donal Óg O’Callaghan was elected as Cork’s fourth Lord Mayor of 1920, in succession to Terence MacSwiney. He remained in office until January 1924. During this time, he was also Chairman of Cork County Council, a TD in the second Dáil and Éamon de Valera’s Special Republican envoy to the US.
To mark the occasion, Dr Aodh Quinlivan has published Forgotten Lord Mayor: Donal Óg O’Callaghan, 1920-1924 as part of Cork City Council’s commemoration programme and with the support of the CACSSS Research Publication Fund.
Forgotten Lord Mayor is available for online and ‘click and collect’ purchase from a variety of sources, including www.uccshop.ie, Waterstone’s, Vibes and Scribes, St. Peter’s and the Nano Nagle Centre.
