Is now online.

Of course we are all pacifists now but it will be interesting to see what people dig up. The picture above (Pro-Treaty) is not to suggest anything though John B.Keane’s series ‘Letters of a successful TD, Minister’ etc has quite a bit devoted arranging annuity for constituents with all sort of fantastical IRA claims. The TD himself trading on credentials of a fabricated encounter with the Tans at the ‘battle of Glanalee’.

Plenty of digging to do.

A facinating resource and what was released today is only the tip of a very large iceberg. Spent about three hours on it earlier and discovered, among other things, that my granda became a Brigade O/C about three months earlier than I thought he had – just a few months after he’d turned 20.

It’s a good antidote to the ongoing attempts at “Great War” revisionism.

“Of course we are all pacifists now…”
