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.

From the 1959 Presidential Election a small paper De Valera for President badge.
Many thanks to the sender who notes…

You can’t tell from the photo, but it’s actually just a little bigger than the size of a stamp. And, interestingly, there are two tiny holes in it, suggesting it was worn as a type of badge.
