Memorial Card for Terence Mac Swiney

Terence Mac Swiney (1879-1920) was a Sinn Fein Lord Mayor of Cork who succeeded Thomas Mac Curtain, another Sinn Fein Lord Mayor, murdered by Police on 19 March 1920.

Mac Swiney died in Brixton prison, London on 25 October 1920 on the 74th day of a hunger strike, following his imprisonment for the possession of a Royal Irish Constabulary cipher.

His hunger strike gained worldwide attention for the nationalist cause in Ireland, and his funeral in Cork was a massive display of national solidarity.
