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
