    Reference the site above, if you're looking for ancestors from Dun Laoighre, they've moved Kingstown to Co. Tipperary.

    And also Ballynahinch, Co. Down and Coleraine.

      "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.

        There is but it's unlikley to have sent six lads to the ANZACS. Apart from that I checked the CWGC site where at least one of them is listed as killed. His address is given as Kingstown, Co. Dublin.
