Irish Nationalism In London During The War Of Independence, 1919 - 1921: Propaganda, Gun Running And Diplomacy

Blanchardstown Library

With Dr Mary MacDiarmada. Despite operating in a very hostile environment, between 1919 and 1921 a small but committed group of Irish nationalists in London made a significant contribution to the campaign for Irish Independence. This talk will explore the work of the Irish Self-Determination League of Great Britain, the role of Art O’Brien, Dáil Éireann’s first envoy to London, and the activities of the London IRA and IRB.
