The following comment to a recent post of mine, this by Richard R. Mc Gibbon Jr. , had me perplexed for a minute, as I do know that there are lots of unknown and unsung hero's in our Irish History........ This blog is really about... if there is anyone out there on the Wild Geese World Wide, amateur or indeed a professional Historian, who could advise how and where this information could be accessed.............. I am willing to do the research if I am pointed in the right direction.
Richard R. Mc Gibbon Jr. : Well folks how about we discuss the different aspects of Irish history and include all our hero's regardless of age, sex, height, complexion, etc. The sad thing is that many people who helped with Ireland's fight for independence will never be known. Their job was intelligence gathering and that meant being one of the unknown hero's. Maybe we should try to connect the "dots" of history and see if their sacrifice can be improved upon by our generation to make Ireland, the USA and the world a better place, with freedom and justice for all. Slainte !
To Richard R McGibbon JR. : I will endorse that line of history 100%. Where do we start? ..... Are files available anywhere in Ireland that would allow access to the public to search for all of these unknown hero's of our History? ....
If anyone out there has any knowledge of where to obtain files or documents that contain info on any unknown hero, please let me know. I will do the research if I know where to start looking.
