1200 word (max) historical analysis including statistics (demography) of the Belfast Brigade of the Irish Republican Army.
I need an academic profile, with evidence from BMH archive for IRA pensions, military service (1916-1923) find their names on the 1911 census for Ireland then build a profile including things like:
How old they were?
What sort of work did they do?
What religion were they?
Did they speak Irish?
Where did they live?
What was the rate of emigration?
Rate of internment/imprisonment?
What activity did the Belfast company undertake?
What political/military activity took place in the specific area (Belfast) between Jan 1920 and Jul 1921 (open insurrection period)?
This is Oral History
