Spartan,
if you look elsewhere on this site Bannerman has posted at least one thread detailing the uniforms of the Irish Citizen Army

Also:

The Volunteer,
Uniforms, weapons and history of the Irish Republican army 1913-1997
By James Durney

Published: by Gaul House 2004

Well Illustrated it follows a similar format to the Osprey books. I can put you in touch with James if you can't find it.

Can't list a good Free State source of the top of my head but have a look at the Irish Defense forces website www.military.ie and if you can get your hands on An Cosanteor magazine from the 70-80's for F. Glenn Thompsons articles on the history of the Irish army uniform
