de Valera Takes the Case Against Treaty Ratification to the Irish People at Thurles
de Valera: This treaty bars the way to the Republic
With the blood of fellow Irishmen!
Then so be it!
The Volunteers will have to wade through Irish blood,
Through the blood of some members of this government,
In order to get Irish freedom!
