Donal J. O’Sullivan was clerk to the senate of the Irish Free State (1922–36) & editor of the Journal of the Irish Folk Song Society (1920–39).
This work has been described as ‘As a cogent delineation of the treatyite case, arguing the legitimacy of the state and the integrity of its institutions, and alleging its steady subversion by political, but undemocratic, means, owing to the machinations of Éamon de Valera.’
