Fianna Éireann was originally founded in 1909 by Constance Markievicz and Bulmer Hobson. They trained with firearms, drilling, and first aid. There were Fianna Éireann in Castlebar around 1913 or 1914. This was at the height of the Irish Volunteer Force (IVF)formed on 25 November 1913 and the Howth gun running (26 July 1914).
Does anyone have any information as to where they may have tained ? Would the Connaught Telegraph have any information ?
