Draft Memorandum by Hagan with Observations on the Pope's Recent Reference to Ireland
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Handwritten [draft memorandum] by [Hagan] for [...], with observations on the Pope's recent reference to Ireland. It marks a great advance on previous pronouncements. But while it is laudable that His Holiness does not condemn the republicans as criminals, it is still regrettable that 'the present struggle in Ireland means nothing more than a split based on rival views as to the nature and [extent] of political liberty and independence'. Explaining the difference as lying in the Free Staters' resignation to foreign rule, and the republicans' willingness to risk all to avoid such. (This could be in reference to the Papal allocution of 25 May discussed by Curran on 9 June; HAG 1/ 1923/ 302.)
