Content & Structure

The Michael Healy Papers comprise records relating to C Company 2nd Limerick City Battalion Mid Limerick Brigade 1917-1924. They include narrative accounts of Brigade activities during the War of Independence and information on the reorganisation of the Limerick Brigades during and following the Irish Civil War.  The survival of the collection is unusual as the anti-Treaty IRA was considered to be an illegal organisation and their records as a consequence were usually kept secret.
