Jack Hickman - Kingston, ON Lyr Req: Many Young Men of Twenty (23) RE: why Many Young Men of Twenty? 20 Oct 99


This is directed to Big Mick, in response to your post of October 18. You refer to the Provisional IRA as having been in existence during the Civil War. It was my understanding that the Provos didn't exist until shortly before the current troubles started in 1969, when they broke away from the Official IRA. Back during the Civil War, the antagonists were the Irish Free State Army under Michael Collins, who supported partition, and the IRA under De Valera, who opposed it.
