Eoin O’Duffy


Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the rise of Eoin O'Duffy as a national figure and as a revolutionary in Ireland. It explains that the bitterness and disillusionment provoked by the Anglo-Irish Treaty split and Irish Civil War exerted a greater influence on O'Duffy's subsequent career than the preceding years of unity. This can be seen in his membership of the inner circle of the revolutionary élite and his multiple roles as chief of staff of the Irish Republican Army (IRA), treasurer of the Irish Republican Brotherhood (IRB), and Dáil Éireann politician.

Keywords:   Eoin O'Duffy, revolutionary, Ireland, Anglo-Irish Treaty, Irish Civil War, IRA, IRB, Dáil Éireann
