There is a lot of interesting items on that particular auction site lately. There is a posthumously awarded 1916 and Black and Tan medal for 15,000 sterling along with an Oglaigh na hEireann and I.V. belt buckle from the same seller for a grand each. There was also a merchant navy Emergency medal which went for 637.00 Euro. There was also a collection of medals and other items relating to the British Army in Ireland during the 1916 Rising and War of Independence and some interesting items relating to ADRIC members.

Hi Kev,

The badge commemorates the campaign led by Daniel O' Connell for Catholic Emancipation and the 100 th anniversary of the passing of the Catholic Relief Act of 1829.

Hi Brendan,

Any information on who the posthumous recipient was ?

Hi An Ceallach,

I did contact the seller through Ebay, unfortunately I got no reply. I am always a bit puzzled as to why the recipients of Irish medals have to remain anonymous and does the seller really expect someone to bid that much without knowing who the recipient was.

Brendan.
