At the risk of boring people, more on the civil war in Dublin; two audio items here.

One a radio doc on the war around Griffith Barracks http://www.theirishstory.com/2011/11/13 ... civil-war/

The other a conversation on local radion Near FM http://www.theirishstory.com/2012/01/06 ... near-90fm/

I was wondering are there any sources that deal in any detail with the Dublin Guards? They seem an interesting, and horrific, bunch.

You could try tracking down a copy "In The Legion of the Vanguard" by John Pinkman. Imprisoned in Dartmoor as a member of the Liverpool IRA, he was released after the Treaty and came to Dublin where he joined the Dublin Guards. Naturally his perspective isn't exactly objective, but it's an interesting read all the same.

I remember that book, thanks Kieran, will do so.
