My grandfather and his bhorter were both Volunteers in the 3rd Northern Division.They lived in Cargan,In the Glens of Antrim and were involved in activity around the North Antrim area . I know they took part in the raid on Martinsown Barracks ,which is mentioned in the book Northern Divisions.They were part of the Colour Party that laid the Duffin Brothers to rest in Glenravel. I know that they also raided post offices and stopped mail trains that were carrying communications for the British Forces.Would appreciate any further information in relation to the IRA in this area.
