Handbill encouraging people to support the withdrawal of British administration from Northern Ireland. Includes an image of the then British Home Secretary Rab [Richard Austen] Butler "...inspecting British defences in Occupied Ireland. The headline below, from a Dublin evening newspaper, tells its’ own story", [includes an image from the Evening Herald, dating from Wednesday March 16, 1960 with the headline "Planes, tracker dogs in big border search"]. Last page has references to the signing of the Treaty by Griffith and Collins [under a paragraph entitled "Because it suits England"] while underneath this in a paragraph entitled "All Ireland for the Irish" which states "Only those who actively fight British Occupation and who hold in sacred trust the uncompromising Republican principles of Wolfe Tone, Robert Emmet, Thomas Davis, John Mitchel, Fintan Lalor, O'Donovan Rossa, Padraig Pearse, James Connolly, Terence MacSwiney, Cathal Brugha - principles personified in our time by Sean Sabhat and his comrades - only those have a right to speak for Ireland in this generation's name. Their resisitance to foreign rule is sanctioned by history for they speak with the authentic voice of their generation". At bottom "Marian Printing Co., 32 Portland Place, Binn's Bridge, Dublin".
