Just how did Major Bowen get to work the following day!

The above taken from the Cork Weekly Examiner in October 1920 is an interesting and funny snippet, however that edition of the Examiner was full of sad stories of the Martyrdom of Cork Hunger Strikers McSwiney, Mick Fitzgerald and Joe Murphy, it has many stories about ambushes around Cork and the counter raids that ensued in places like Ballinhassig and leap to name a few.
