The men from Dundrum area were 'A' Coy of the Sixth Battalion IRA and there strength would have numbered around 50. I have the names and ranks of a few local men and was wondering if yourself or Krustybob might have any more info you could share on your relatives or that period if at all possible.
    Kind regards,

Another of my relatives by marriage served with the Old I.R.A. and was given a military funeral when he died , his name was James "jimmy" O"Connor, he owned a barber shop in Donnybrook which was located opposite the Garda station , I dont know which unit he served in .

    I agree with Dev. As far as I remember Rockbrae House only has one window to the right of the door.

    Lovely pics. Great to see them being saved on computer,the loss of so many of national treasures like these over time is unbelievable over time , thanks for sharing.

    You only realise the value when you actually have to go digging for information.
    What's even better is the fact that there are some great guys in Ireland who actively spend part of their lives helping people with Irish military history; help people trace ancestors, identify medals, source pictures and even go as far as archiving parts which are relevent to their particular historical interests.

    There are so many of them here on IMO that it'd be silly to try name them all, but a few of them have posted on this thread already. Great work guys, it's great a great dedication to the history of our young nation.

    First three are of a relative of mine who served in the Old I. R. A. and in the Free State Army during the civil war in which he was killed . Other one is of my father in the L.D.F. during the " emergency " otherwise known as the Second World War . He's kneeling , holding a Model 1917 Enfield ' picture was probably take in Dundrum Co Dublin .
    I haven't posted for a few weeks but i'm breaking my silence to say thanks for sharing those pictures. And what a great idea for a thread. I hope there are plenty more contributions.

    Good work fella
