Nationalist Gravestones

These are four headstones from City Cemetery, Derry, to Irish nationalists who served and/or were killed in the 1920s. In order, they are to “James McGlinchey was founder and commander of Irish National Volunteers in Derry c. 1912-1922”; “Óglach Hugh Morrison, killed on active service at Skeoge 17th June, 1922 [and] Susan Morrison, Cumann na mBan”; “John Gallagher died 21-6-1920 killed in June riots, Derry [and] Hugh Gallagher died 12-12-1922 shot by Free State soldiers at Drumboe Castle”; and, “Edward McMenamin active service during the Irish war for independence.”
