As of this week, two new set of records have been released on  These are free to research and neither have been online before.  They mka blog Horgan Courts Martial (2)are Irish Courts Martial Files 1916- 1922 and  Ireland Intelligence Profiles 1914-1922.   They are not the easiest in the world to search through, but if you have a Kerry name whose records may be included, my best advice is the put in the minimum – just name and Kerry, Ireland in the location.

For instance I came across a Courts Martial file on James Connor, Robert Kelly, Dan Horgan and Dan Spillane who held up a train and ‘deprived’ the military of arms, ammunition & equipment.   The full details of the trial are there and the evidence (which was all one sided as the only witnesses were the military) is included.
