"Fianna Fáil, "
Formed and led by Eoin O'Duffy who was President of the Executive Council; Éamon de Valera dismissed O'Duffy as commissioner; O@Duffy that July, O'Duffy was offered and accepted leadership of the ACA and renamed it the National Guard. He re-modelled the organisation, adopting elements of European fascism, such as the Roman straight-arm salute, uniforms and huge rallies. Membership of the new organisation became limited to people who were Irish or whose parents "profess the Christian faith". O'Duffy was an admirer of Benito Mussolini, and the Blueshirts adopted corporatism as their chief political aim.
