Eamon de Valera by Donal Kennedy

A  British Movietone coverage of de Valera’s life from 1882 to 1973 when he retired from the Presidency. It is detailed and fair and shows the the popularity he enjoyed at home and the respect he earned abroad.It is a rare example of honest examination and fair coverage of Dev by a British news medium. I realise that it should surprise, even shock trendies and ultra-republicans alike
