Chapter 3: Methodology

Primary resources

Much of the primary information was sourced from local and National Newspapers of the time. The literature at local level in the Mayo and Galway County libraries is about the war of independence and the bitter civil war that followed. Some of the participations of this area made contact in some way with Michael Staines and Joe Ring in their role as liaison officers during the truce and in this way this information and their stories are relevant. This is also the case in the Roscommon area where he lived as a child and returned later to organise the successful Sinn Fein campaign for the bye elections of 1917 in North Roscommon, Longford and later Clare where De Valera was easily elected.
