Research Begins On Documents On Irish Foreign Policy Volume X

31 January 2015
DIFP is now in a ‘research year’ for DIFP volume X. This volume will run from 1951 to 1957 and so take in the 1951-4 Fianna Fáil government with Frank Aiken in his first term as Minister and the 1954-7 Second Inter-Party Government when Liam Cosgrave was Minister.
