I would be pleased to hear your family history about your RIC ancestor and would like to post up messages here.

Irish ballad singer Christy Moore wrote, “Sebastian Barry has written two very successful stage plays (and I think a book) about the RIC. History gets re-written eternally. The revisionists are hard at work in Ireland at the moment and, doubtless, will soon focus on the not  quite forgotten RIC. Like yourself, I had a grand uncle who was a member of the RIC. He died when I was a boy. I remember him as being a lovely gentleman.”
