In Collection: Cronin Papers, 1905-1945
Description: Fred Cronin was interned by the British authorities at Cork Male Prison and Spike Island between May and December 1921. The Spike Island hunger strike lasted only four days, ending Friday 2nd September 1921. Cronin's parole application bound him during the period of his release not to "render any assistance, direct or indirect, to persons disaffected towards His Majesty the King, or do any act calculated to be prejudical to the restoration or maintenance of order in Ireland." Republicans generally disapproved of parole-giving and it was permitted only in cases of severe family stress. Cronin had 5 children, of whom the youngest, Maire, required a major operation and was dangerously ill for a time. His wife Katie had died.
