Product Description

Volume 1 & 2 Set

Ruairí Ó Brádaigh, former President of Sinn Féin, Chief-of-Staff of the Irish Republican Army and TD representing Longford/Westmeath, died in June 2013. He was one of the most influential figures in Irish Republicanism for more than half a century. 

To honour Ruairí Ó Brádaigh’s theoretical contribution to Irish Republicanism and to honour Ruairí Ó Brádaigh as a revolutionary politician, Cló Saoirse/Irish Freedom Press will publish Ruairí Ó Brádaigh: Selected Writings & Speeches, Vol. 1, 1970-1986 (ISBN 0-9545791-3-5). The book is edited by historian Dieter Reinisch, Researcher at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy, and author of Cumann na mBan: 100 Years Defending the Republic (2014). It includes an Introduction by Prof. Robert W. White of Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis. He is the author of Ruairí Ó Brádaigh, The Life and Politics of an Irish Revolutionary (2006) and Provisional Irish Republicans: An Oral and Interpretive History (1993).

The writings included in this volume span the period when Ruairí Ó Brádaigh was member of the so-called Provisional Irish Republican Movement and President of Sinn Féin (until 1983). This was a crucial period in the life of Ruairí Ó Brádaigh, the Republican Movement and Irish history. The period is encircled by two important splits in the Republican Movement, the formation of the Provisional Army Council (1970) and the formation of the Continuity Army Council (1986). Consequently, the Volume starts with the programmatic What is Irish Republicanism? (1970) and ends with Ruairí Ó Brádaigh’s speech at the Sinn Féin Ard-Fheis in 1986 before leading a historic walk-out.
