The International Brigade volunteers were led by the IRA warrior, Frank Ryan. Their rivals, who became a battalion of Franco’s Foreign Legion were mostly members of the semi-fascist Blueshirts, and were commanded by the ex-leader of that movement, General Eoin O’Duffy. In late 936, two enemy crusades – Communist and Catholic – left Ireland to fight it out in Spain.’
