    Very interesting piece, I have the Newcastle booklet of de Valera’s visit in February 1949. I was just wondering who acquired this information as I am attempting to write a dissertation at Newcastle University of de Valera’s visit to England in 1948/49 and any help would be greatly appreciated.
