Historic Republican Cheque Purchased by Museum

The museum recently purchased a cheque at auction which was written by local man Dan Fraher, Dungarvan for the amount of £99 and made payable to Cathal Brugha.  Dated the 4/1/1920 the cheque was probably for the Dáil Loan Fund.

Signed on the reverse by Michael Collins, Cathal Brugha, D. O' Donnachada and the bank manager.  The museum were very fortunate to be able to purchase this historic cheque which was made possible from the recently set up purchase fund.
