1922 Irish Army Census

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


GlasgowLass Report 27 Oct 2013 18:01

I only knew of one relative ( a great uncle) who joined the new Irish Army.
He was a rural postman in 1919.

I found him on the above census link in his hometown in Donegal.
He was a Sergeant in a Garrison which held just 16 men.
I am astounded to find 5 others in the Garrison were from my family too, including 2 of his wife's brothers, 2 of his cousins and... my own Great Grandfather ( married to his sister)
