A 1985 speech from then leader of Fianna Fail Charles J Haughey to the First Annual Dinner of the Friends of Fianna Fail in America. Its quite interesting in that it is very Rebulican in tone and illustrates efforts to get Irish America involved in the Northern Question as well as helping Ireland economically. Its 15 pages long so I uploaded in pdf, Click here to launch in pdf or click on the image below to do so.

From ‘This Week’ magazine April 1970 a profile of a pre Arms trial Charles Haughey. In an almost ‘Hello’ type interview and profile that feautures his family, his horses and much more. The question of the sale of house and lands in Raheny to builders is glossed over. Still worth a read.
