Pre-August 1914 Recruitment Figures (Irish Times?)

Recommended Posts

MJROB

Dear All,

I'm interested in tracking down pre-World War One recruiting figures for Ireland. Rather than overall figures, which I already have, I'm particularly interested in a pre-war breakdown of the various depots/areas/counties/regions in Ireland. Has anyone got any advice on where to get such figures?

I know the Irish Times had such figures during the war, and was thinking (before purchasing a subscription) that maybe the newspaper also published figures before the war?

Any advice would be warmly welcomed.

Kindest regards,
MJROB

No figures in the Times or the Independent or associated local newspapers. The article below, from the Irish Independent November 1913 states that the Army will start to use the Newspapers for recruiting in the new year (1914).
