Visit the Battle for cork exhibition in St Peters Cork from 15th August 2022!

The battle for Cork, fought between the National Army and Anti-Treaty IRA in August 1922, was one of the most significant military operations in the Irish Civil War. This exhibition will capture scenes from that battle taken by photographer William David Hogan.

Born in Quartertown, Mallow, Co. Cork, Hogan was a commercial and press photographer who had a studio in Henry Street in Dublin. During the Civil War he became what today would be known as an ‘embedded’ photographer with the National Army and he accompanied that force during the Battle for Cork.

The photographs he took during that time were subsequently arranged by National Army Chaplain, Fr. Denis J. Wilson.

Today they are known as the Hogan-Wilson Collection and are held in the National Library of Ireland.
