    With an Irish mother so he was still Irish. Just making sure the above is not used as an argument to overturn the Citizenship referendum.

    Wikipedia has him already down as a 'Spanish-Cuban settler and sculptor' so presumably the Spanish businessman story is not 'as believed'. as they think.
    That's complete nonsense. I disagree with you.

    According to Tim Pat Coogan's biography he was Spanish, I can't remember what job though. He also claims using a decent amount of evidence that Dev's parents weren't married. Which is ironic considering Dev’s actions concerning things like that.

    maybe the term 'hispanic' wasn't yet in use to describe Spanish-speaking immigrants to NYC....
    That's complete nonsense. I disagree with you.

    he was most likely related to Fulgencio Batista , another right wing corrupt dictator who lined his pockets while his people went hungry . With all the problems the Cuban people have itd be a tragedy if they had to take responsibility for Dev as well .
