JTT Help: The Foggy Dew: 'Valera true'? (62* d) RE: Foggy Dew 1916 30 Oct 00


The cruel libel on Emmet Dalton has been disproved since last year, when a documentary on Irish TV interviewed members of the original Republican flying column that ambushed the Collins car. They definitely said that they had shot Michael Collins.

For anyone who's interested, here's a link to the debate on the Treaty in the Dail; it may be noted that many of the anti-Treaty speakers died in the Civil War.

Eamon de Valera is regarded with mixed feelings in Ireland; he led Ireland for many years, and led it from Commonwealth subject to Free State to Republic by devious and cunning politicking; on the other hand he presided over a regime of summary executions of many of his ex-comrades.
