In Collection: Cronin Papers, 1905-1945
Description: Fred Cronin was interned by the Free State Government at Hare Park Camp, Co. Kildare, during the Civil War. Mary Roche writes that the children are unhappy at Coláiste na Rinne: "They don't seem so much in love with the place as you might think. They say they will hate to go back and it is just like prison and they don't know how they will stick it up for 5 long months ... Dick seems to have been a great favourite with the boys but Una and Maeve did not get on so well with the girls and this made them feel lonely ... Maeve said that the Fear Mor gave her three with a big stick for speaking English ... [Dick] said he never saw a nurse there and the doctor was always drunk and the Fear Mor used [to] hide from him when he came to the college".
