I came across the photo below and was thinking about Cavalry in the Irish Civil war, I have done some research on the subject, the only info I could find in one of my books was that an Anti Treaty group of about 50 of their best riders was formed during the battle of Kilmallock, I can't find any mention of how they were deployed or if they saw any action, I would deploy them as Scouts and escorts for the improvised Armourd Cars. Also I cant find any mention of Free State Cavalry during the war I guess they did not use large units of horse, as I want to make my games as exciting as possible I have decided to include small cavalry units on both sides..

Free State Patrol
Strelets WW1 British Cavalry

Hat Frontier Light Horse
with some conversion work they will make nice Anti Treaty Cavalry
