  • New Forum: Irish Coast Guard

    A new forum, Irish Coast Guard has been created in the Non-Military section. This was created at the suggestion of a number of members to cater for posts which are not really suitable for the Air Corps forum or the Navy and Navel Reserve forum. Some threads/posts have been moved into the new forum and others may follow.

    "Fellow-soldiers of the Irish Republican Army, I have just received a communication from Commandant Pearse calling on us to surrender and you will agree with me that this is the hardest task we have been called upon to perform during this eventful week, but we came into this fight for Irish Independence in obedience to the commands of our higher officers and now in obedience to their wishes we must surrender. I know you would, like myself, prefer to be with our comrades who have already fallen in the fight - we, too, should rather die in this glorious struggle than submit to the enemy." Volunteer Captain Patrick Holahan to 58 of his men at North Brunswick Street, the last group of the Four Courts Garrison to surrender, Sunday 30 April 1916.
