Cork Mental Hospital, Youghal

Hi, does anyone have any information on this place during the 1920's, or wether there any records of the place available?

I found a death record of someone who died in there aged 22 and i am trying to figure out if he is part of my family but im not sure where to go from here.

Here is the death record: its the first one on the page.

JAMES DEATH


The only other information i have of him is that he was born in 1901.

Youghal was an auxiliary hospital attached to Our Lady's Hospital, Cork, and its records are held by Cork Archives.

Medical records are usually sealed and you'd have to make an FOI request to access.

I got hold of my great-grandmother's, but I had to prove my descent from her.
