Frank McGrath: Youghalarra’s Influential Republican Leader:

1veyurmwub4nlvb4ggmp8vw

Historian and former Burgess hurler Liam Hogan has penned a timely article about his great granduncle the Republican leader and the man after whom the north senior cup is named, Frank McGrath. Given the current focus around the 1916 anniversary it is appropriate that we look back at Frank’s experiences before during and after the rising. It’s a fascinating well-researched  piece that’s well worth a read. The article, which Liam promises is only part one of a two part series, can be read online at the following address.
