Many visits were made to the local history section of Castlebar County Library where some primary material was found. This included photographs and old election posters used by Michael Staines when he stood for election for Sinn Fein in Dublin for the first Dáil in 1918.A visit was also made to the Galway and Roscommon local library to find local information on the important organisational role he played during the Sinn Fein bye election victories of North Roscommon, Longford and Clare, and also the important role he played as liaison officer with his deputy Joe Ring between the British in Galway/Mayo and the IRA immediately after the truce.
