- Curator's comments
- The cartoon appeared shortly after Eamon De Valera and the Fianna Fáil party took office in what was then termed the Irish Free State with the intention of weakening connections with the UK.
The published cartoon is reproduced from the Evening Standard on the website of the Centre for the Study of Cartoons and Caricature at the University of Kent at Canterbury (http://opal.ukc.ac.uk).
