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

A fascinating piece of Irish History. “1882-1982 Eamon de Valera Comóradh Céad Blíaín” , a programme produced for a concert in the NCH to mark the centenary of the birth of Eamon de Valera. It contains many pictures of his life, a biography, tributes and more. It’s fairly large so I have uploaded it in pdf, click here or on the image below to launch

From “Iris Fianna Fail ” Summer 1975 edition, Tomás Ó Maoláin remembers the first Fianna Fail Ard Fheis August 14, 2015


From The “Iris Fianna Fail ” Summer 1975 edition, the then Vice President of Fianna Fail Tomás Ó Maoláin gives his recollections of the first Fianna Fail Ard Fheis. It was held in the Rotunda Building on November the 24th 1926. It’s a wonderful account of the event. Interesting too to see how many people with links to the Easter Rising of ten years earlier were on the Partys National Executive.
