Subject: RE: Gulp! Ewan MacColl - Scottish or Not?
De Valera was born in New York City in 1882 to an Irish mother; his parents, Catherine Coll (subsequently Mrs Wheelwright), an immigrant from Bruree, County Limerick, and Juan Vivion de Valera, a Cuban settler and sculptor of Spanish descent.
He was not born in Ireland, Some have even suggested he was a British Spy
