Overview

"Ireland Standing Firm is a frank and pungent account of Robert Brennan's time as Irish Minister in Washington immediately before and during the second World War. Brennan gives a fascinating account of his efforts in defending Irish neutrality and his meetings with leading American officials and politicians, including Franklin D. Roosevelt." "In the second memoir, Eamon de Valera, Brennan describes his close association with Eamon de Valera from their first meeting in prison in 1917 until de Valera's retirement as Taoiseach in 1959." These two entertaining memoirs were originally written for publication in the Irish Press newspaper in the 1950s.
