Royal Irish Constabulary Records

These entries are taken from the manuscript records of the RIC in the PRO, London. The index is only alphabetical under "G" so some could have been missed. I have also excluded those joining 1917 and later from Britain (the Black and Tans)

From Rosemary Gifford - Tamsyion Katherine Grant was married Nicholas Gifford .. She was the daughter of  Alexander Grant Clonakility Co Cork ( Sub Inspector) . I am  along with Dr Jenny Martin (Historian )finishing of a book on the GIffords ,Glascotts and Symes . The book will be launched in Wexford in June. While we are not focusing in the Grants Tamsyion would have been the sister in Law of my father in laws grandfather Charles Symes Gifford.
