Copy Typescript Report from [...] for [the Italian press]
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Copy typescript report from [...] for [the Italian press]. Quoting a letter from an important personality, presently at the Peace Conference in Paris, to a Roman friend, offering insights into the Irish political situation. Explaining that the 'government' of Ireland exists at the moment, officially in Dublin, and 'secretly' in the United States, where the 'Yankees' recently named DeValera simply as the president of the Irish republic, and where Irish organisations fulfil a role very like that of the Greek financiers in 1821 in Petersburg, London, and Paris. Also stressing the importance of the Irish in Australia. This 'enormous force' is countered 'in vain' by politicians in London and by the affiliations of the Ulster [organisations]. Also pointing out that the clergy in Ireland, for reasons of prudence, takes a less pronounced lead than the Irish clergy abroad, as evidenced in Cardinal O'Connell's paper (the Pilot of Boston), and in Archbishop Manning [Mannix] of Melbourne's apology of Sinn Fein.
