To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Connecticut Freedom of Information Act ("FOIA"), I hereby request the following records:

All information on pro-Irish republican activity in Connecticut , including but not limited to the Hartford chapter of Irish Northern Aid (INA or NORAID). Activity would include fundraising for Northern Ireland, public events including protests, sponsorship of Irish speakers, chapter meetings, principal Hartford INA leaders and members, networking with INA chapters and members in other states.
