In Collection: Letters from Caitlín Brugha, neé Kingston, to Edmund Downey, 1922-1927
Description: Writes of the release of prisoners: "The prospects are now looking very good for the prisoners, it is only a matter of time until Dev [Eamon De Valera] is back again. The general opinion is that the Free State is only also a matter of time & that [W.T.] Cosgrave & the rest are making hay while they can. They are all buying fine houses & I heard that one of them owns practically half Greystones. This of course may only be gossip but it's very often near the truth ... Sinn Féin at present working on a policy which will be practical & workable for the country, with the addition of Sean T. [Ó Ceallaigh] & the others we expect to make some headway now that the awful hunger strike is over & the prisoners coming out".
