Scope and content

A large bound volume with a manuscript annotation on the spine which reads ‘The North / Partition / Northern Ireland’. The volume contains original letters and draft manuscript and typescript contributions and commentary re the ‘Orange Terror’ article by 'Ultach' (J.J. Campbel) published in ‘The Capuchin Annual’ (1943). The file includes letters from Bishop Daniel Mageean, George Noble Plunkett, J.J. Campbell, Eamon Donnelly, Senator David Robinson, Maud Gonne MacBride, Jack B. Yeats (refusing to contribute a commentary on the article), and Sir Shane Leslie. The volume also contains many general newspaper clippings about partition. The volume also includes a printed flier from Ailtirí na hAiséirghe (1943). The volume includes content mainly from 1941-9 but it also includes some newspaper and magazine clippings from c.1917-1932, particularly relating to the treatment of the Catholic minority in Northern Ireland. The volume is not paginated.
