Default OTC Ireland info

Hi folks
I'm a newbie here and recently posted some OTC Ireland related Titles and buttons etc along with medical corp, and so I have started to research a bit about OTC Ireland and was wondering if the info I have found online (see photos I found online) are these correct ref the OTC Ireland being short lived raised in 1909 and wrapping up in 1922 when Northern Ireland was formed or am I reading this wrong.
As I say I'm a complete novice but since getting these items and also joining this group and seeing the wealth of militaria and it's history and knowledge base here I'm genuinely intrigued and 'possibly ' going to be a new collector.
Any information about OTC Ireland or guidance on where to look will be appreciated.
Please not the two images were not taking by me they were found online at an old auction site.
Thanks Sean

As the card says the OTC was an Irish one formed after 1908 when the OTC system was created as part of the Senior Division of OTCs (University) and disbanded in 1922. Not much more that is on there.

The cap badge and insignia are the rarest of Senior Division items.

I suspect the s/ts and buttons alone are worth so much more than you paid for them at a car boot! It's a shame the owner was badged RAMC (although understandable) as the OTC cap badges are £200-300.
