Just a quick post to thank the Military History Society of Ireland and all of my fellow speakers at Saturday’s conference, jointly hosted by the Military History Society of Ireland and the National Museum of Ireland, Collins Barracks.

There was an extremely high level of scholarship present and my thanks on the day go to Lar Joye for his technical support and an excellent paper and also to Ann Matthews, David Murphy and Steven O’Connor for excellent papers. Thanks also to the chair on the day, Pat McCarthy.

For those interested, I hope to post up my paper on Military Training of the Irish Volunteers, here shortly.
