An incredible piece of Irish History, an autograph book from Gormanstown Internment Camp during the Civil War, belonging to Patrick Cahill. It contains 49 pages of autographs, messages and drawings by fellow prisoners many who went on to become prominent people within the State. Among those who signed the book are future President Sean T O’Kelly, Oscar Traynor and well over 100 others. It’s fascinating looking up the names in the Bureau of Military History archives to see what each did in the War of Independence.
Many thanks to the sender.

From 1937 (The IRA was banned in 1936) a copy of Republican News that was just a single sheet of paper, probably illustrating the difficulty trying to print a full paper at the time.
AN interesting read and it is highly critical of Fianna Fail.
