Next Trip to Dublin

Quite a few things building up for another trip to Dublin.

Have been in touch with the archivist at Guinness re the 1916 records they have there and hope to get a look at them.

The archives team at the Royal Dublin Society may have some information about the Army Remount unit that was stationed there during WW1. It's been a good while since I went to the Dublin Horse Show and that will be on the agenda this summer too.

The Irish Railway Records Society might have some photos re the improvised armoured cars used during the Easter Rising and possibly some information about the armoured train that was put together to transport troops from the North.

I've yet to do the 1916 Walking Tour so may well get on to that too.

Fron Goch beckons

hoping to head up to Fron Goch in North Wales at the end of April for a tour of the site of the prison where the rebels were held after the 1916 Rising. With 2 authors on the subject as guides, this should be an interesting trip.
