Oglaigh na hEireann paper Permit, 61/2" x 5," dated 11/10/1922, authorizing Patrick Martin John McDonagh to ride a bicycle for a period of one month from 11/10/22, between Kiltimagh and Swinford, during Civil War, in 1922, signed by local Captain, Jack Benson.

Permit needed to be renewed on a monthly basis to enable cyclist to travel within the area without harassment from Free State Forces.
