Who are they?

Published in Issue 1 (January/February 2014), Letters, Volume 22


Sir,—Can any reader identify this group of IRA Volunteers or name any of them individually? The photograph was discovered in recent years and was the property of Mrs Molly McGovern (née Drum), Ballyconnell, Co. Cavan. The group was probably photographed in the 1918–21 period and are well armed. If from County Cavan, they may be from the Ballinagh/North Longford Brigade or student Volunteers from University College Dublin, where Miss Drum was a student at that time. All identifications, comments, etc., would be most welcome.—Yours etc.,
