Documents on Irish Foreign Policy

Volume II, 1923-1926

Edited by: Ronan Fanning, Michael Kennedy, Dermot Keogh, Eunan O'Halpin

This is the first detailed account of the Irish government's policy towards the Boundary Commission, which was to define the border between Northern Ireland and the Irish Free State. The volume also chronicles the first steps taken by the Irish Free State on the international stage, its admission to the League of Nations, the appointment of T.A. Smiddy as Minister Plenipotentiary to the U.S., the development of Irish-American relations and the fraught negotiations surrounding the Boundary Commission and its collapse.
