As of this week, two new set of records have been released on Ancestry.co.uk. These are free to research and neither have been online before. They 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.
