Two possibilities to follow up and rule in or out: (1) the Belfast Newsletter of 18 March 1941 reported the sentencing on ammunition charges of a Felix Stevenson at the Spring Assizes, County Courthouse, Armagh, his address was given as 28 Black's Court Lurgan; and (2) the Londonderry Sentinel of 6 April 1940 reported a similar sentencing of a Henry McGrogan, an address of 15 Christian Place Belfast was mentioned, which reads across to this internet reference:

If there are any images posted above that are important to you, take your own copy - I cannot guarantee they will appear indefinitely.

Thanks James. His father was also Felix, so it is more likely to be Felix, senior

The books are not in the shops, but several libraries throughout the country have them. If you let me know where you live I will advise you. If you wish to purchase, you will deal directly with the publishers and I will ship them.

Patrick, re...
http://www.belfastforum.co.uk/index.php/topic,69793.msg1976985.html#msg1976985

If by that you mean what is available online via PRONI about those files, then you didn't see the actual file contents, because online PRONI only gives a description of the file contents.

As I said, the actual file contents can only be viewed in person at PRONI, and someone on here with boots on the ground in Belfast might be able to help you with that,... but PRONI also provides a research assistance service for researchers such as yourself.

Thanks James. The author emailed PRONI some days ago and received the standard automated acknowledgement, they are very busy, etc. So we hope for a response.

Patrick Hegarty of Westland Avenue, Derry was a tobacconist. He was arrested and deported from England after the Rising in 1916. A source has suggested that he was interned in the 1940s. Anybody on the Forum know anything about this?

Don't know about any 1916 post rising deportation from England, it seems unlikely, as 1800 Irish rebel detainees were held post rising, and up to December 1916 in Fron Goch internment camp in North Wales.

However, this is your man from that address, being arrested in Sinn Fein Hall in Richmond Street in Derry/Londonderry in late 1919 on a charge of possession of ammunition and explosives, and being tried by military court martial and being acquitted.

This is an article that mentions Sinn Fein Hall in 1919 several times.

I've got a bunch of documents from the file about his arrest and trial if you want them,... there's only 34 of them. !
