Please would you be able to check out anything on my granduncle, Mick McGrath, who would have been detained in the Curragh during 1923c? I would be so grateful to find out anything. Family heresay isn't really enough. Thanks a million!

Just to say that due to the handwriting there may be some errors in the spelling of the names and places.

I was very interested to come across the Curragh Camp detainees.    Is there any more you can tell me about Michael Fuller, Lixnaw, Co. Kerry?   I believe he is a relative of mine.
