Professor Walsh Released from Frongoch

The prisoners were well treated

Snippet from the Galway Express 01 July 1916

‘Professor Thomas Walsh, University College, Galway, who was interned in England following the rising, was released from Frongoch on Tuesday, and returned to his home at Taylor’s Hill.  He informed a Press representative that, on the whole, the prisoners were well treated at the internment camp, but that a number of them badly required clothing. The prison was an old distillery situated in a very healthy part of North Wales, and contained 300 prisoners, 100 of whom were, however, removed to another camp during last week.  The last message he got when leaving the camp was, he said, that the Irish prisoners were against exclusion.’
