Irish military records
Before starting out on your research try and find as much information about your family member before contacting the relative archives. It will make your job explaining a lot easier and archivist job of finding any records a lot quicker.

Although the following may seem obvious and some of the information you may not know. Any time spent here will pay dividends in the end of your research.

*Christian Names and Surname
*Date of Birth
*Address or even County at time of enlistment.
*Army Service Number (This is the Key to all searches)
*Unit’s Served (3rd Battalion, 4th Motor Squadron)
*Corps served in. (Engineers, Cavalry, Military Police, Infantry, Air Corps)
*Overseas Service (UN Missions - Congo, Lebanon, Cyprus)

The Ireland Reaching Out (Ireland XO) project is based on a simple idea; instead of waiting for people of Irish descent to trace their roots, we go the other way. Working through voluntary effort at a townland, village and parish level here in Ireland, we identify who left, and trace them and their descendants worldwide, proactively engaging with them and inviting them to become part of an extended “virtual” community with their place of origin
