    Military Service Pensions Collection

    Military Service Pensions Collection

    A new online database contains a wealth of first-hand accounts and information relating to the revolutionary period.   These previously confidential files are part of the Military Service Pensions Collection and contain details of almost 3,000 individuals who claimed to have been engaged in the national movement from 1916 to 1923.  Many of the leaders of the independence movement describe their activities in great detail in their pension applications.   Apart from their testimonies, there are also statements from wives, commanding officers, doctors and foot soldiers in the collection.   There were two Military Service Pensions Acts.

But dancing at the crossroads remained a popular form of entertainment well into the 20th century. It faded with the arrival of large rural ballrooms in the 1960s.
