This is the first part of the Clare 1916-1923
project. It includes (thanks to the Military
Service Pensions Collection, The
Military Archives and ancestry.com)
over 3,200+ Volunteer/IRA/ National Army Pension and Medal applications,
with another 400+ for
Cumann na mBan. It presents
the Nominal Rolls for the
East, West and Mid-Clare Brigades (6,500+ names at MSPC) and
Cumann na mBan
(also at MSPC) .
It also includes the Activity Files for the Brigade Volunteers and
links to the Clare Witness Statements
and to Clare County Library. It includes over 8,200 names in all.
Also available are valuable
Court and RIC records from the period
The second part will include
(thanks to findmypast.ie, ancestry.com and
David Grant at theauxiliaries.com)
over 2,000+ profiles of all the RIC, Black and Tans and Auxiliaries
in and from Clare for the period,
along with details of all the 58+ Clare RIC Barracks, Huts and
Protection Posts with the roll of officers in each one for each
year from 1916-1921,
their location, photos and maps, and a timeline of their attacks
and closure. The British Army Regiments in Clare, their numbers,
location, photos and maps, along with some individual profiles
also be covered (see the The 6th
Division in Munster page 352).
The third part (thanks to the Clare Local Studies Centre and
Clare Newspapers) will give a list of civilians affected by the
destruction caused, along with a timeline, a list of the Revolutionary
Dead (Pre and Post Treaty) and newspaper reports.
It is hoped to have this project completed by the 24th May 2023.
