  • Signature: "To bring into one constitutional movement all citizens of good will who realise that national peace is necessary to national prosperity".
  • Medium: Letterpress by Gaelic Press, Dublin [April 1926].
  • In March 1926 a special conference of Sinn Féin declined to carry de Valera's proposals for flexibility in relation to attending Dáil Éireann. De Valera resigned as President of Sinn Féin and withdrew his supporters. An organising meeting was held on 14 April, the date quoted in this poster (see Langford and O'Neill, page 245), and on 17 April de Valera gave an interview to United Press Agency in which he gave the name of the new party as Fíanna Fáil. This poster appears to be the earliest public document prepared for the new party, and must have been drafted mainly by de Valera as it is consistent with his UPA interview. The poster is rare and is not mentioned by Coogan or Longford and O'Neill, who mention only a letter to potential supporters.

Price Realised: €1700

  • Compiled by Ethel Turner, secretary of the Irish-American Commitee for the Release of Frank Ryan. Limerick born Frank Ryan joined the IRA first in 1920 while a student at University College Dublin. He later served with the East Limerick Brigade and fought on the Republican side in the Civil War. He was interned by the Free State in 1923. After release in late 1923 he moved up the ranks of the IRA and was a senior member of the Army Council, as well as editor of An Poblacht, in which capacity he was twice jailed for sedition. A committed socialist he went to Spain in 1936 to fight with the Republicans against the Fascists. In 1938 he was captured and sentenced to death, the sentence later commuted to life imprisonment. In 1939 he was transferred to Germany in an extraodinary deal as the Nazis thought, as a lifelong enemy of England, he would be useful in helping to mobilise the IRA to attack Britain. He met IRA Chief of Staff Seán Russell in Berlin and embarked with him in a submarine to Ireland but Russell fell ill and died on the journey and Ryan returned to Germany. Frank Ryan remained there till his death in 1944 at Dresden, having been ill himself for some years. His body was repatriated to Ireland in 1979.
