The Military Service (1916–1923) Pensions Collection (MSPC) contains material relating to applications for pensions and gratuities by veterans of the Irish Independence struggle as well as relatives of those who died as a result of their service during those years. Material from the MSPC is being made freely available online through the Military Archives website. Project Archivist Michael Keane will look at the background and importance of the Collection, and examine some of the ways it can best be accessed and explored using examples of Dublin based events and personalities.
