You have to remember, demobilisation of the men coming home from France only started once the Germans actually signed the peace treaty on April 1919. Once the post war manning was freed up for work at home, did the appeal to get paid, follow simple orders and avoid having to sign on or struggle to find a peace time job apply. With the feelers for peace mentioned above, the active recruitment for those fallen or wounded, would continue until the handover of power to the Irish themselves.That explains why the KIA were all Constables from the mainland with only a few months service. Thanks.
That make sense or do you need it broken down a bit
