Handbill, black font printed on green paper, advocating support for the National Loan and listing reasons why people should subscribe to it - "...Because your money will come back to you in the increased prosperity of Ireland". Trustees are listed at bottom of handbill as Dr. Fogarty, Archibishop of Killaloe, Arthur Griffith "(for E. [Éamon] De Valera)" and James O'Mara T.D.. "Get a copy of the prospectus from your member of the Dáil or his representative in your parish". Dáil loans were bonds issued by Dáil Éireann to raise money to fund the state apparatus the Republic was attempting to establish in opposition to the [British government] Dublin Castle administration. Dáil Éireann approved the First Dáil Loan on 19 June 1919 for £500,000 - half in an Internal Loan raised in Ireland, half in an External Loan raised in the U.S.. Aa both were oversubscribed and the External limit was increased to $25m in August 1919. The money raised was held in bank accounts in Ireland and the U.S., controlled by three trustees: Dr. Michael Fogarty, Archbishop of Killaloe; Éamonn de Valera, the President of Dáil Éireann and James O'Mara, T.D..
