MKA Blog Lizanne O'Brien Cumann na mBá has released a third tranche of records from the Military Service (1916-1923) Pensions Collection (MSPC). It includes files relating to 53 Kerry people, 7 of whom are female.

These files are now added to the previous tranches giving in total 2839 released covering the entire country.  There is a wealth of information in each file, of interest to both the local historian and the genealogist.  Take for instance the file relating to Lizanne O’Brien, President of Tralee District Council of Cumann na mBan  I remember Lizanne in Tralee when she must have been in her eighties, rosy cheecked with little round glass, the picture of innocence.  Yet her record which has been corroborated by esteemed figures such as Paddy Cahill, a director of the “Kerry Champion”, Tralee, and Brigade O/C., North Kerry, Paddy Barry, Rock St., & John McCarthy,  tells a different story.
