Spanish Civil War

I have just been told that my grandfather, who died about 10 years ago, fought in the Spanish Civil War in the 1930s. This was news to me. My Grandfather came from Cork, Ireland. I know that quite a few Irish went over to fight but I have no idea how to go about confirming that my Grandfather was involved. Does anyone have any ideas as to where I might find further info?

Is this allowed, please?

I am endeavouring to discover when and where someone died. I have posted on other forums, such as family tree forum, and on rootsweb mailing lists, in case anyone can find her or is from her family, but to no avail.

Is it okay to post about her in here, too, in the looking for individuals, please?

Going out soon. Back later.
