In Collection: Cronin Papers, 1905-1945
Description: Includes detailed submission (typescript) to the Political Victimisation Committee establish by the Fianna Fail Government in 1934, correspondence with two Ministerial offices, letters of support from the Cork Old IRA, members of Cork Corporation, and others. With manuscript drafts and letters from Cronin's lawyer Diarmuid Fawsitt (later a judge), press cuttings etc. Fred Cronin was employed for 30 years as a clerk in the Cornmarket under Cork Corporation. His salary continued to be paid during his internment in 1921, 1922-1923, but in 1923 a Commissioner appointed to take over the affairs of Cork Corporation dismissed him, and awarded him a pension of less than half his salary. Cronin claimed he had been victimised on political grounds, and his prolonged campaign for a full two-thirds pension was eventually successful (the responsible minister was Sean T. O'Kelly).
