A Live Public Webinar to mark the launch of the new interactive IRA Companies Map created by cartographer Charlie Roche in collaboration with the Military Archives 


Join us at 3:00pm (Irish Time) on Thursday 20th of January 


In this one-and-a-half hour webinar Dr Donal O Drisceoil of UCC School of History joins cartographers Charlie Roche and Mike Murphy to discuss the research and construction of a new interactive story map based on the Nominal Roll files in the Military Service Pensions Collection. This extraordinary research tool maps Ireland’s 2,181 IRA companies and their respective strengths on two critical dates between the end of the War of Independence and the beginning of the Civil War.

Also joining us to discuss the collaboration with UCC and the IRA Nominal Roll Files and Brigade Activity Reports is Cécile Gordon, Senior Archivist and Project Manager of the Military Service (1916-1923) Pensions Collection Project. UCC School of History’s Dr John Borgonovo, will conclude the webinar with case studies of two IRA companies featured on the map.
