Families torn apart, allegations of anti-semitism, the revolutionary hero who billed the State for a sun holiday, poverty, hunger and disease – the military pensions archive will keep the historians busy for decades. Journalist and author Ronan McGreevy, who has spent four years studying the collection, tells some of the stories behind the applications and talks about the IRA’s brigade activity reports that have just been released.
