  • Signature: Great Britian and her forces. Oglaigh na hÉireann General Headquarters printed letterhead, duplicated typescript, signed with initial in ink 8
  • Dimensions: 25 by 20cm., 10 by 8in.
  • Provenance: George O'Dwyer, Brigade Commandant, Kilkenny Brigade IRA, later Brigadier General, National Army and Chief Superintendent of An Garda Siochana, and thence by descent.
  • Literature: Accompanied by authenticating letters (2) from General Richard Mulcahy.
  • This order was delivered by hand overland to a safe house in North Kilkenny whence it was delivered to Brigade Commandant O'Dwyer who was under cover with the Flying Column. It was probable that less than 20 of these documents were issued and very few have survived. This is the only example we know of outside of Government archives and public collections, and as far as we are aware there is no example in the National Library of Ireland. It is a highly desirable and rare document, as well as being a dramatic and important milestone in Ireland's history, bringing to an end the War of Independence and heralding the beginning of an independent Irish state.

  • Dimensions: 51 by 38cm., 20 by 15in.
  • It is thought this poster was shown to delegates to the Treaty talks as part of the pressure exerted on them to accept Britain's offer of partial independence. Churchill had threatened to swamp Ireland with troops and to fight a no holds barred bloody war against the republicans. This poster was produced to show he was serious. The poster's imprint indicates a printing of 100,000 and is dated 1921. An exceedingly rare and historically significant item.

(2) 20 November Oglaigh na hÉireann, Eastern District Command headed notepaper typed and manuscript letter confirming Childers conviction by a military court of being in possession of an "automatic pistol" "without proper authority" and sentence of death, and transferring him to the custody of Commandant P O'Connor at Beggars Bush Barracks, signed D. Hogan, Commandant General, GOC Eastern Command, (3) a handwritten letter "I wish to see Father Albert, who is a Catholic clergyman or in the next place Dr Brown, also a Catholic.

O'Connor, signed "Gearoid O'Suilleavain" Major General "The Dean of Kildare will get every facility to administer spiritually to Mr Childers". Note: It is believed that the authorities suspected that Childers, a Protestant, asked for particular Catholic priests because they were sympathisers with Anti-Treaty forces and he might pass information to them. The mention of "spiritually" (which is clearly added in as an afterthought by General O'Sulleavain) in the letter is a veiled instruction to O'Connor to see that no messages were passed to the Dean. (5) a handwritten note dated 23 November 1922 on the headed notepaper of The Office of Adjutant General to Comdt. O'Connor to have Erskine Childers brought under escort to Kilmainham Prison to consult his solicitor, "Mr O Huadhaigh". Signed by G. O'Suilleavan Adjutant General, with a postscript "Handcuffs".
