Hi, someone has informed me that either my grandfather, George Richard Bryant, or my grandmother, Helena Ellen Bryant were in Cork Prison in 1921 for breaking a Curfew. At present I can only see that Find My Past hold these records but one needs a subscription. Does anyone please have a subscription to FMP that could look this up for me and perhaps copy and paste (if that is possible) what is found. The grandparents address at that time was Suttons Buildings.

Any help would be much appreciated. I have mailed the gentleman back but probably due to the holiday period looming he is busy. Am itching to see the information.

Kind regards
