The Cosgrave Party: A History of Cumann na nGaedheal, 1923-33

Most political parties are created to win power, but Cumann na nGaedheal was built by men already running a country. The Cosgrave Party tells the unique story of a political party born into government amidst the bloodshed of civil war. It reveals the true complexity of Cumann na nGaedheal and investigates the internal politics of the party as it struggled with ideological tensions and personality clashes. All occurring while its leaders simultaneously ran a government and built a state despite threats from those both outside and within the political system. In this book, the party is shown to have helped to consolidate the tradition of constitutional nationalism in Ireland.
