    It’s gratifying to know that Ireland’s true history has not been completely blanked out by RTE, The “Irish” Times, and the Revisionist cabal.

    Would love to claim a good republican pedigree but my relations were “respectable;” the IRA shot and killed my first-cousin-once-removed RIC Luke Finnegan in Thurles. My Uncle Kieran Fogarty was with the Free State army against republicans until about 1923. My Aunt Ann’s IRA husband Jim Moore survived a shoot-out in a hotel in Nenagh at about that time. His comrade was killed.

    I have an interest in the history of a few fighters from the time of the voluntiers and the money that may have been sent to Ireland by Irish sympathisers in America but I have no E-Adresses to contact. Perhaps you can help me research the voluntiers in the Cashel Parish, Co. Longford area and James Brislane from the Liscarroll, Co. Cork area. Aslo money that may have been sent to Ireland from Ventura Co. California area. Thank you
