Charlie Donnelly - Irish veteran

A collection of articles, etc.

I've collected a series of articles about the volunteers for Spain, including several by or about Tyrone volunteer Charles (Charlie) Donnelly.

The Collection overall has been expanding and so I've decided that it will be easier to find the assorted articles if I combine them, so here we are.

If anyone has details of book reviews, other interviews, etc, please get in touch and I'll add them here.
