Easter Rising Centenary leaflet from Seán Haughey -Fianna Fail -Dublin Bay North #ge16 January 25, 2016


An impressive Easter Rising Centenary leaflet from Seán Haughey who is running for Fianna Fail in Dublin Bay North.
The leaflet contains a fascinating account of the activities of Seán Lemass during Easter week 1916. Seán Lemass being the grandfather of Seán Haughey. Aptly enough the leaflet also contains a section “Was your family involved in the events of 1916”.

From 1959 “One Nation” a pamphlet issued by Fianna Fail of a speech delivered by An Taoiseach, Mr. Sean Lemass, T.D., at a meeting of the Oxford Union Society on October 15th 1959.
Its is in these pages that the famous Lemass quote comes from.
“It is, indeed, the simple truth that Ireland is one nation, in its history, in its geography and in its people, entitled to have its essential unity expressed in its political institutions.”
As its 14 pages long I’ve scanned it in pdf form.
