William Joseph Quinn
Today is the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Irish Volunteers. This took place at the Rotunda in Dublin and 7,000 people are reported to have attended the first meeting. 

William Joseph Quinn, my husband's grandfather joined the Irish Volunteers in 1914. Click here to see in my nine posts beginning November 6, 2011 that describe his service in the Irish Volunteers.
