Irish Vigilance Association

Thomas Nolan

I would guess that the year of the certificate is probably about 1918-1920, when my Dad would have been 9 - 11 years of age I think.
'The Irish Vigilance Association' was founded in Dublin in November 1911, under the auspices of the Dominicans. Its primary purpose was to protect Irish Catholics from the excesses of the English popular press. Volunteers were sought and a number of Vigilance Committees were set up in various parts of the country."
