Two of these items held in the Department of Ephemera. Letter from the Bishop of Limerick to the editor of the "Munster News" dated 10th November, 1915. Copy containing the following: "...the treatment which the poor Irish emigrants lads have received at Liverpool is enough to make any Irishman's blood boil with anger and indignation. What wrong have they done to deserve insults and outrage at the hands of a brutal English mob? They don't want to be forced into the English Army, and sent to fight English battles in some part of the world".
