Nazi Government and I.R.A.

The I.R.A. had a continuing contact with Nazi Germany from the mid 1930s until D-Day.
Before the war, the I.R.A. killed five civilians and wounded seventy in Coventry one week before war was declared.
Tom Barry was very keen about his stay in Berlin in the late 1930s.

As per the forum charter there is a need to provide some primary or secondary sources when discussing potenitally contentious historical topics. Thus the original post is rather light on these. If the OP could provide a more focused evidenced post?. - Mod

Here you go, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irish_..._collaboration. So whats going to be next, the I.R.A and Sinn Fein lured Jesus to his death?. You know when people are scared when this is what they resort to.

Might also be helpful to say something about what you're posting. Posting facts that you assume to be already generally known, with no comment or analysis, is pretty odd behaviour.

"The Irish Parliamentary Party worked closely with the Liberal Party in the later decades of the 19th century and the early decades of the 20th. This alliance was tested when the Irish Party split over Parnell, but resumed when the party regrouped around Redmond."

Here is some more for you, "While IRA chief-of-staff during 1937 Barry made clear his opposition to the proposed bombing campaign in Britain and explicitly condemned the proponents of this campaign’s courting of Nazi support. Finally, Barry certainly remained strongly republican all his life but he was both openly and privately critical of the Provisional IRA. He felt that an Ireland ‘free and overflowing with milk and honey’ would not have been worth the cost of the Birmingham bombing of 1974. In 1976 he refused to sign a letter of support for republican prisoners, arguing that the Provisional IRA had lost support because of its own recent activities, activities that he as an old IRA man could not countenance. The correspondence is undated but I suspect it was written in the aftermath of the Kingsmills killings of January that year.". Now do your own research.

I've read a number of books on Ireland during WWII and Abwehr-IRA links.

The IRA bombed Coventry just before WWII started as part of their S-Plan bombing campaign in Britain.

Contact between the IRA and the Abwehr mostly ceased after 1942 primarily due to plans to invade Britain having been abandoned, and also due to the Abwehr discovering that the IRA were of no help.

What question? There is no question. Just an effort of a thread.
