Irish Republican Army Order-of-Battle, 11 July 1921

The following order-of-battle (OOB) for the Irish Republican Army (IRA) at the end of the War for Independence (1919-1921), taken from the Military Archives site of the Irish Defence Forces found at http://www.militaryarchives.ie/collections/online-collections/military-service-pensions-collection/search-the-collection/organisation-and-membership/ira-membership-series.  The records were collected beginning in 1934 with the Military Service Pensions Act, mostly into the early 1940s but with a very few as late as 1959.

These records give orders-of-battle as well as personnel rosters of the units of the IRA on two “critical dates”, first at or near the end of the War for Independence, and second at the height of the Civil War.  This OOB is for the first critical date, 11 July 1921, the day of the truce.

When the Irish National Volunteers first organized in 1913, sponsored by the Irish Parliamentary Party under John Redmond, it was largely in response to Ed Carson's formation of the Ulster Volunteer Force in the north.  Their number tripled when members of the Ancient Order of Hibernians joined them en masse.  They first organized by companies based on geographic district, later evolving battalions and, in a few places, brigades.

The Volunteers split in 1914 over the support of Redmond, for London’s war on the Continent, the overwhelming majority, over 100,000, following Redmond as “National Volunteers” while those who remained committed to independence became the “Irish Volunteers”.  Included among the National Volunteers was almost the entire contingent of Hibernians, a fact which puts the Irish Volunteers reluctance to include the Hibernian Rifles who wanted to cooperate with them in perspective.

For the Easter Rising, the Command Staff merged the Irish Volunteers with the Irish Citizen Army, the Cumann na mBan, the Na Fianna Eireann, and the Hibernian Rifles (a paramilitary wing of the Ancient Order of Hibernians) into one force named the “Army of the Irish Republic”, but the merger lasted only as long as the Rising.

After the Easter Rising in 1916, most organizations dissolved, but then reorganized the next year, largely in part to the return of detainees.  As before, companies were organized first.  In late 1917, groups of companies around the country began to form battalions.  The next year, many areas began to form brigades, which were the largest units fighting the War of Independence for most of its duration; many battalions, though, remained independent of higher authority other than the central command.   Divisions did not come into being until March 1921, some not being organized until June or even after the Truce on 11 July.  In the meantime, the Irish Volunteer Force officially became the Irish Republican Army sometime in early 1919. 

* * * * *

This OOB is a snapshot of an organic organization that was constantly growing, shrinking, and changing throughout its history, a snapshot of the IRA as it stood on 11 July 1921, the day that the Truce which ended the fighting in the War of Independence took effect.

The designations of the units are those given in the Irish Defense Forces records. 

Divisions, which played no part in the actual war, are identified with by their ordinal number. 

Brigades are set apart by Roman numerals with a period, but here this does not imply that they were those used, it’s just for convenience and organization. 

Battalions follow Arabic cardinal numbers with a period, and these do match up with their official ordinal numeric designations. 

Companies follow capital letters with a period, if their proper letter designation is known; if not, the name of the company is preceded by a cardinal, then I have used a cardinal number with a right parenthesis. 

Companies were often divided into sections with numeric designations, but geographically detached areas were sometimes attached to a larger unit and identified by name; where this occurs and there is a name, it is preceded by a lower-case letter, which also goes for outposts.

For brigades GHQs (general headquarters) and battalion staffs, this OOB takes for granted they existed at the appropriate levels.

Originally, all of the units in which Volunteers served as full-time guerrillas or otherwise operated on a full-time basis were called Active Service Units (ASU).  With the outbreak of the independence war in 1919, the units in the countryside came to be called Flying Columns.

All units at all levels are identified by their geographic area-of-operations as they were during the time in which they fought for Irish independence.

IRISH CITIZEN ARMY

Jim Larkin, James Connolly, and Jack White of the Irish Transport and General Workers Union (ITGWU) organized the Irish Citizen Army (ICA) in the aftermath of the Great Dublin Lockout of 1913 as a vehicle for worker self-defence during strikes and other actions.  Dissension among its members, particularly the leadership, broke out almost immediately over the relationship of some memers with the Irish National Volunteer Force, one that grew worse after the split of the latter in 1914.

In the Easter Rising of 1916, the membership of the ICA was, at least on paper, rolled into the Amry of the Irish Republic along with the Irish Volunteers, the Cumann na mBan, the Fianna Eireann, and the Hibernian Rifles.  In practice, however, the ICA units, which included women in combat positions (most notably its de facto field commander, Constance Markievicz), fought separately in most instances, the attempted storming of Dublin Castle by a combined force of Volunteers and ICA being a striking exception.

The core of the Irish Citizen Army was its Dublin Regiment, subdivided into three battalions: 

No. 1:  City Battalion
No. 2:  North County Battalion
No. 3:  South County Battalion. 

Each of these three battalions further broke down into half-companies.

Outside of Dublin, but still on its outskirts, units of ICA were:

Sligo Company
Balbriggan Company
Lucan Company
Clondalkin Company
Terenure Company
Swords Company
Finglas Company
Coolock Company
Kinsealy Company
Baldoyle Company

How many of these outlying unit remained organized after the Easter Rising is anyone’s guess, though it would be a good bet that many dissolved when their members joined the Volunteers in the lead up to the war.

Between the Rising and the War of Independence, efforts of varying success were made to organize ICA units in Cork, Derry, Drogheda, Monaghan, and Glasgow.  We know the effort in Derry failed because that is what made Peadar O’Donnell decide to join the Volunteers, where he rose to brigadier.


Women’s Section

Though even Connolly himself referred to the womens section of the Citizen Army, in practice the members of the organization were fully integrated.  The ICA did, however, have close relations with the Irish Women Workers Union (IWWU), an offshoot of the Irish Transport and General Workers Union (ITGWU), which came to function much like the CMB (see below) for the Irish Volunteers.  After the Easter Rising, however, the IWWU reorganized as a separate union in its own right.

Irish Citizen Scouts Corps

Despite the fact that Constance Markievicz herself was one of the founders of Fianna Eireann, the ICA established its own scout corps for youth, with a socialist as well as nationalist direction.



CUMANN NA mBAN

The Cumann na mBan was founded in 1913, the same night as the inauguration of the Irish National Volunteer Force.  It was a women’s nationalist organization that during the War of Independence became an auxilary to the IRA.  The year after its founding, CMB absorbed the earlier Inghinidhe na hEireann, found by Maud Gonne in 1900.

In its resurgence after the Rising, the CMB organized in structures parallel to those of the IRA, ideally (but not always in practice) matching brigade for brigade, district for battalion, and branch for company.  Were the records of the Irish Defense Forces as complete for CMB as they are for IRA, I would list them all.  Since they are not, however, I will select the testimony of one individual, Maire Bean Mhic Gilla Padraig, Adjutant of the North Wexford Brigade of CMB, about what a fully-developed CMB structure looked like.

I.  North Wexford Brigade Area (CMB)
            1.  District No. 1
                        Ballindaggin Branch
                        Ballycarney Branch
                        Marshallstown Branch
                        Kiltealy Branch
                        Kilmyshall Branch
                        Bunclody Branch
                        Enniscorty No. 1 Branch
                        Blackwater Branch
            2.  District No. 2
                        Rathnure Branch
                        Poulpeasty Branch
                        Enniscorty No. 2 Branch
                        Caim Branch
                        Killane Branch
                        Clonroche Branch
            3.  District No. 3
                        Ferns Branch
                        Clonee Branch
                        Camolin Branch
                        Ballygarrett Branch
                        Kilanerin Branch
                        Riverchapel Branch
                        Gorey Branch
                        Boolavogue Branch
                        Monageer Branch
                        Castletown Branch
            4.  District No. 4
                        Carnew Branch
                        Askamore Branch
                        Cranford Branch

The West Connemara Brigade Area, by contrast, had just three sub-units:  Clifden Branch, Ballinafad Branch, and Letterfrack Branch.

Clan na Gael

Sponsored by the Cumann na mBan, this association was the counterpart for young and adolescent girls to the Na Fianna Eireann, which had resisted their inclusion.  Much different than the same-named covert organization based in America, it was an Irish republican version of Girl Scouts founded in 1910 under the aegis of Inghinidhe na h√Čireann, a nationalist group for women that preceded and merged into CMB.



NA FIANNA EIREANN

Established in 1909 by Bulmer Hobson of the Irish Republican Brotherhood (IRB; a much different entity than the IRA) and Constance Markievicz by combining his earlier Fianna, founded in 1902 to promote hurley, and the Red Branch Knights unit of the Irish National Boy Scouts, resulting in the latter organization changing its name nationwide.  The Fianna became a feeder group for both the IRB and later the Irish Volunteers.  Beside nationalism and romantic history, much of their activities included military-like training.  Fianna units served at all of the locations during the Easter Rising, and it was, in fact, Fianna members who fired the first shots.

During the Wars, they served in every brigade area, and their structure mirrored that of the IRA (as they were by then called).



IRISH REPUBLICAN BROTHERHOOD

Founded in 1858 by John O’Mahony, the IRB operated as a clandestine oath-bound secret organization supporting Irish nationalism that worked behind the scenes in the early 20th century to manipulate rising nationalist sentiment into achieving what that sentiment called for.  All the leaders of the Easter Rising and nearly all those of the War of Independence were IRB members. 

With one dissenting vote, its board voted to dissolve in 1924, declaring its purpose complete in the treaty which established the Irish Free State, whose name in Gaelic, Soarstat Eireann, was exactly the same as the term for “Republic of Ireland” declared at the GPO in 1916.



CLAN NA GAEL

Before returning to Ireland to found IRB, O’Mahony had earlier that year established in America the Fenian Brotherhood, for which IRB was the Irish sister group, with Michael Dohen and James Stephens.  It is from the FB that Irish nationalists, of the “physical force” tradition in particular, get the moniker “Fenians”.  The FB split hopelessly into three different factions in the aftermath of the invasions of Canada of 1866-1867.  There were three of these, all under name which may sound familiar:  “Army of the Irish Republic”.

To replace their disfunctional sister organization, the IRB influenced the Irish-American community to organize the Clan na Gael, beginning in 1867.  In 1877 when John Devoy led CNG, the IRB embraced it as a sister organization.

The FB dissolved itself in 1880.

To coordinate activities between the two, a Revolutionary Council was established under the by now familiar name of, once again, “Army of the Irish Republic”, with three representatives of the IRB, three of the CNG, and one from the Irish community in Australia.

Through this partnership, operatives of both groups could criss-cross the Atlantic knowing they would find a home across the ocean.  Even the Australian community played a part, as when Devoy and John O’Reilly smuggled a six OTR Fenians prison escapees there aboard the American whaling ship SS Catalpa.

Like the IRB, the “official” CNG, the Devoy wing at least, voted to dissolve in 1924, but the rival Reorganized CNG under Joe McGarrity remained and partnered with the “new” Irish Republican Army, now a clandestine group much like the IRB, in 1927.
