information required

I am researching my grandfather Mick Greehy, Paddy Greehy and Johnny (Jack) Greehy. I have two black and tan medals I got from my grandmother several years ago but she never told me who they were awarded to. I have heard that Mick and Jack Greehy were in the IRA but I have no proof. There was a company in Fermoy under Bill Power and then Liam Lynch, there was also a company in Araglin / Kilworth. Is there anyway I can get lists of members from 1919-22.

Yours Sincerely
Michael Kearney

    I’d have the majority of the ‘Fermoy’ Flying Column names and quite a few of the Fermoy Company names and all of the Araglin Company names. Where were the Greehy’s from

    hi Neil, it’s great to hear from someone with some info, the greehys were from Araglin/Kilworth, they all would have been of age to be members of the 1st batt, my grandfather mick then moved to fermoy and opened a hardware store at the bottom of walker’s hill and my parents subsequently had a supermarket there, i have gotten some info from Paudie McGrath and from Bill Hammond’s book ” soldier f the reargard”, I would be forever in your debt if you could email me some of the lists you have and how you found them!!! as i have been pulling my hair out looking and waiting for responses from the irish army pensions bureau and military archives. i have done quite a bit of research into the WOI and from 1913 up until 1923, However this is very personal to me as my son also is very interested in the medals and I would love to be able to tell him who they were awarded to.
    hoping you can help.
