    1934 Documents from the National Archives:  IRA and the Blueshirts

    1934 Documents from the National Archives: IRA and the Blueshirts

    In the early 1930s, emotions were still running high around the country. A decade after the civil war, it was still very much in recent memory. Catriona Crowe’s documents from the National Archives related to 1934 and tensions between the IRA and the Blueshirts.   Ireland in 1934 In 1934, Ireland was 11 years away from the end of the Civil War. So it was still fresh in a lot of memories. The country had been ruled by Cumann na nGaedhal from 1922 to 1932, when Fianna Fail began an uninterrupted period of 16 years in power. Fianna Fail immediately embarked ...

    Adoption Files 1948 – 1972

    Adoption Files 1948 – 1972

    Adoption Files 1948 – 1972 by Catriona Crowe Philomena, the movie about Philomema Lee’s search for her son given up for adoption, has raised interest again in the 2000+ Irish children adopted in the US between 1948 and 1972, all of them taken from mother and baby homes or Magdalene asylums. In early 1996, I discovered around 2000 files in the National Archives relating to Irish children adopted in the United States. The files had been there since 1990, but no-one knew about them. I had heard Maggie Butler, who had been one of those children, on the radio talking ...

    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.

    1974 Power Sharing Executive

    1974 Power Sharing Executive

    40 years ago this month, the Northern Ireland Executive declared 1974 as the Year of Reconciliation in the North. The first attempt at power-sharing in the region began on the 1st of January which meant that there would no longer be majority rule.   The power sharing executive was established on foot of a number of initiatives involving the British, and later the Irish, governments which culminated in the Sunningdale Agreement of December 1973. Catriona Crowe has dug up some documents from the National Archives relating to this time which you can find below.   She spoke on the programme about the background ...
