I realise this is a long shot but if username 'athcarne' is still active I would very much like to view the diary he talked about in a post in 2013, see copy of post below. I believe my grandfather Michael Murphy may have been mentioned in the list of internees in 1923.

See copy of post below:
I have a small diary of people in Curragh Camp, Hare Camp 1923 in handwritten comments from internees as follow. forgive my interpretation as the print is rather small in in old irish.
Hutch 30 hare Park , Curragh
Sean O'Cogariin, Cathal O'Cein, Ft White,P O'Connor,L.Redmnd,Thmas Hgan,Tadg O'Floigg,Patrick O'Neill,Richard Knowles,Sean de Paor,Andrew Coffey,Jim McDonnell,Thomas Woods,john Colelough,Michael Murphy,Alardaip,de Bailegn,Tmair Ua Beacain,Seamus O'Brian,S.Mac Geapisilt,A.Power, Patrick Sheehan, Tom Brick, Maurice Spillane,Nicheal O'Grinin, Peadar Vinclair,Cinnuikicadon,Sean O'Riagain

Hi Rob,
I was looking at the list of signatures who contributed to the diary and I saw my great uncles name, Thomas O'Brien, You don't have the full last name but I'm pretty sure it's him as he was in the hunger strike in the Curragh prison. Would you be able to send on some of his writings, or any information at all would be lovely,
Thank,
Niamh.
