TitleThe Ruairí Ó Brádaigh Papers
DescriptionThe Ruairí Ó Brádaigh papers relate primarily to his involvement in the Republican Movement. The collection contains a small number of items relating to 'The Border Campaign'; a large number of items relating to the 1975 cease-fire and related events; some other material relating Ó Brádaigh's time as President of Provisional Sinn Fein and some items including letters to newspapers which look back on earlier events such as the meeting between leading Republicans and Protestant clergy men in Feakle, Co. Clare. The material relating to the 1975 cease fire and talks on a bi-lateral truce between the Republican Movement and the British Government consists primarily of notes taken by Ó Brádaigh at the time of the talks. These notes sometimes erroneously described as 'minutes' relate to face to face meetings between the representatives of the Republican Movement and representatives of the British Government and also contacts between the two parties carried out through an intermediary. The notes were taken by hand at the time of the meetings by Ó Brádaigh and subsequently typed. There appear to be no major differences between the content of the handwritten notes and the typed versions. Some of the handwritten notes are very rough and were not typed up.
