    The department of defence has masses of archives, including accounts from every surviving 1916 participant's pension application.

    New files relating to Dublin Irish Citizen Army (ICA) members released

    My great grandad got interned for 3 months, but there's some confusion about where, Frongoch probably but other places were used. He didn't take part but my teenage gran and her sister did and weren't interned, so it's assumed that it was punishment for their activity.
