Personal Correspondence of Frank Wall as General Secretary of the Fianna Fáil Party:
August 1984-December 1987
February-December 1988
January 1989-January1991.
Letters, many asking for information on aspects of Fianna Fáil in the context of research. Many of the letters are from women. For example:
FF249 letter from Máire Bean Uí Dhubhghiolla, 15 June 1987, 'I will not say a chara or a chairde, I do not think I will vote for or support the Fianna Fáil Party anymore. The necessary 'Health Cuts' have nothing to do with my decision. Successive leaders of Fianna Fáil have betrayed all that De Valera and the 1916 leaders stood for..It is no accident that under a Fianna Fáil Minister for Education, in this year's Leaving and Intermediate certificate examinations, English was the first paper, on the first day, of the first week of the exams and Irish is relegated to the second week of both examinations. The ideal of Éire Saor agus Eire Gaelach has been abandoned by Fianna Fáil. Over the years Ireland has been well and truly sold by Fianna Fáil and now I fear Emmet's Epitaph will not be written..' She signs off 'Yours truthfully'.
