Military Service Pensions Collection

Military Service Pensions Collection

An amazing archive went online on Thursday and it gives a fascinating insight to the role our ancestors played in the various movements that fought for independence for Ireland from the Irish Volunteers to the Citizen Army, the Irish Republican Army and Cumann na mBan.

Individuals can be searched online and searches will bring up lots of documents relating to them revealing first hand accounts of their experience in events like the 1916 Rising and the War of Independence.

It’s called the Military Service Pensions Collection and historian Diarmuid Ferriter joins Marian in studio.
