Thread Name: Ireland and the Spanish Civil War
Subject: RE: Ireland and the Spanish Civil War
If I had being born then, there was no way that I would have gone to fight in Spain for either Eoin Duffy or Frank Ryan. "Franco's allies were the powerful and wealthy, Frank Ryan's men came from the other side." Eoin Duffy was with the Blueshirts. :The Bishops blessed the Blue Shirts in Dun Laoghaire as they sailed beneath the Swastika to Spain. Now, let me see, which pub in Dublin would I have gone into to?
