TitleMaterial and publications relating to Commandant-General Tom Maguire
DescriptionComandt-General Tom Maguire was an active member of the I.R.A. during the War of Independence and a T.D. in the first and second Dails. As a member of the last All-Ireland Dail who had not subsequently entered the 26 County Dail he was regarded as having the right to declare the Army Council of the I.R.A. as the Executive of the Irish Republic. In 1938 he and a number of other T.D.s from the 2nd Dail did this. Subsequently in 1969 he declared that the Provisional, as opposed to the Official I.R.A., was the lawful Irish Republican Army. Ruairí Ó Brádaigh also published a biography of Maguire.
