Ennis (De Valera) Sinn Fein Club
List of Members, 1918 – 1920


   Ennis (De Valera) Sinn Fein Club. List of Members,      1918 –1920

   Alphabetical List of members


A notebook belonging to the late Joe Griffin of Parnell Street, Ennis was donated to Clare County Library by his nephew-in-law, Sean Coffey. The notebook contains the names of the members of the Ennis (De Valera) Sinn Fein Club between 1918 and 1920. The addresses of some of the members are also given. Quarterly membership fees were collected and “sent to Dublin”. The fees increased from 10 pence in 1918 to a half-crown by 1920. The notebook contains six separate lists of members, for 1918, 1919, 1920 (2 lists), a list at the back of the book with no date, and a list of the Standing Committee members. We give the lists here as they appear in the notebook and also a list of all members arranged alphabetically by surname. The names of members who joined more than once are listed more than once. We are grateful to Marie Cahill of Clarecastle for transcribing this notebook.
