Royal Irish Constabulary

About the Webmaster.

I served as a policeman in Birmingham, England for 30 years.
Researching my own family history I found out that I had several ancestors who were policemen in Ireland. 


I have a real desire to read everything about the Royal Irish Constabulary, the Civic Guard and An Garda Siochana to discover more about the lives of these policemen.

I am especially in interested in Queen Victoria`s Ireland and also at the time of the formation of the Free State from 1922 .

This website is in tribute to my Talbot ancestors.
