From the 1943 General Election a pamphlet from Fianna Fail “Ireland 1932 to 1942 – A Story of Great Achievements”. The pamphlet, which is 30 pages long, shows the achievements of Fianna Fail since their entry to government in 1932, it emphasizes the gains made towards self sufficiency. There are many info-graphics illustrating the success of the economic war.
From a historical (and of course political) point of view it’s a very interesting read.

This is quite interesting in that it illustrates the protectionist part of the 1932 Fianna Fail manifesto that in part (along with the refusal to pay Land Annuities) led to the economic war with Britain from 1932 to 1938.
I wonder did Joe Dolan ever see it given the “More and More and More and More and More ….”
