Correct name[edit]

The Mauser 1898 rifle shown is completely incorrect. Few M1898 rifles would have been available in 1916, merely a few soldiers' souvenirs. The Mauser rifes available through arms dealers would have been the M1871 (singleshot) and M1871/14 (repeating) Mauser 1871 variants. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.56.138.65 (talk) 18:15, 5 August 2009 (UTC)


The article name says Irish Citizen Army. The first words of the article say Irish Citizens Army. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 203.122.21.194 (talkcontribs)

Flag[edit]

Flag: how can the design of the ICA flag have changed in the 1930s if, as per the article, the ICA ceased to exist in 1919? Unless this is explained, both image and caption should be removed from this article. Palmiro 13:59, 29 July 2005 (UTC)

Because the blue flag with white stars was a mistaken reconstruction made in 1934 (for the Republican Congress), based on faulty recollections of the original flag, which at that time was lost. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.79.33.250 (talkcontribs)

Irish name[edit]

I am changing the Irish name of the ICA to Arm Cathartha na hÉireann, as this is the form given in the Irish version of the 1916 Proclamation as well as the Ó Dónaill and de Bhaldraithe dictionaries. - Conghaileach 19:40, 27 June 2007
