Listening to Pat Kenny the other day on holiday, I heard a fascinating piece about a Catholic Fascist Party of the '30's-'40's in Ireland. It was called Ailthíri na hAiséirge and it had up to 22 elected members. It had the backing of all Irelands anti-semites like Ernest Blythe and Oliver J.
The book about it is called " Architects of the Resurrection ...Ailtíri na hAiséirge and the Fascist New Order in Ireland" by Ray M. Douglas.
This is the first time I've ever heard of this outfit. Why ? Are people embarasssed?
With 22 elected members it must have had a large following.... presumably the fathers and mothers of this generation of posters on P.ie must have either known or even voted for them!!
