A very interesting Document produced by Fianna Fáil in 2004…..

In 2003 Fianna Fáil decided to carry out a comprehensive Gender Equality Audit. A Steering Group was appointed to oversee the process with independent academic consultants at the Centre for the Advancement of Women in Politics at Queen’s University, Belfast. The Steering Group consideredthe report (which is summarised in the followingpages) and believes it to be a very valuable and constructive document. On the basis of the report,the following Gender Equality Action Plan has beenformulated and is now being submitted to the Fianna Fáil organisation for formal adoption.

I’ve uploaded it in pdf format here

From 1934 a booklet “The Way To Peace Outlined by Eamon De Valera” issued by Fianna Fáil. Historically it’s of interest as among other things,it covers a Dail Debate which centres on Communism in Ireland as well as The Blueshirts and General O’Duffy. Interesting too that Dail debates were issued by the parties themselves. I’ve scanned and uploaded it in pdf format available here
