Military Documents: Christopher Poole Frongoch Internment Details (ICA)


In the days following the ceasefire that ended the 1916 Rising, many of the members of the Irish Citizen Army were ferried over to Frongoch Prison in Wales where they were interred as a result of their service to a nationalist Ireland. Being a Staff Captain and 3rd in Command of the organisation, Christopher Poole was no exception to this mass arrest; his service as 2nd in Command at Stephen's Green made him one of the more detailed prisoners amongst those detained.
