Abstract: Frank Stagg was a member of the Irish Republican Army who was arrested and sentenced to ten years in Albany Prison on the Isle of Wight. He participated in several hunger strikes and died after a 62 day hunger strike in 1976. He was originally buried in Ballina, County Mayo, Ireland, but IRA volunteers removed his remains and buried him in the IRA plot in Leigue Cemetery, County Mayo. The collection consists of articles, book chapters, family charts, a family record, excerpts, magazine articles, newspaper clippings, an obituary, photographs, a poster, and a transcript from the Irish government. In addition to material relating to Frank Stagg and the Irish Republican Army, the collection includes genealogical materials on the John and Thomas J. Vahey and the Patrick Jennings families, who were ancestors of Stagg. The seven photographs included in the collection are photocopies and include photographs of family and friends, and views of the IRA plot as Leigue Cemetery, 1975-1977.
