A quiet unassuming man who had a passion for the culture, language and heritage of Ireland. He was involved in The Gaelic League, a member of The IRB, Fianna Eireann, and The Irish Volunteers. He participated in the 1916 Rising, The War of Independence and The Civil War. Liam spent time in prison in 1916/17 and was interned in 1922/23.
Like many others who helped to make and shape the Ireland of today his story remains untold. He was one of the unsung heroes of the era. This is an attempt to tell some of his story, as we know it now and as it becomes clearer in time. It is an evolving story. Sources of information relating to Liam include his own account of the era though the stories he told his family, his personal letters, documents and photographs, accounts from the Witness Statements of the Bureau of Military History, information held in the National Archives (including Dublin Metropolitan Police 1915/1916), and the National Library; and finally records held in the various prisons where he was detained. This is an attempt to salute the man and to acknowledge his involvement in the turbulent era and in its aftermath.
