Bhí Éamon de Valera-Dev- ar dhuine de na daoine a bhunaigh agus a mhúnlaigh Éire na linne seo. Bhí tionchar an-mhór ag an mbaint a bhí aige le hÉirí Amach na Cásca, le cogadh na Saoirse agus leis an gCogadh Carthartha ar chinniúint an náisúin.
B’eisean an t-aon duine riamh a bhí ina Thaoiseach agus ina Uachtarán; bhí sé freagrach as cur le chéile Bhunreacht na hÉireann. Chinntigh se gur fhan an Saorstát neodrach le linn an Dara Cogadh Domhanda.
Eamon De Valera, “Dev” was one of the founding fathers of the Ireland we know today. His involvement in the Easter Rising, The War of Independence and the Irish Civil War had a huge impact on the fate of the nation. The only person to become both Taoiseach and President, he was responsible for the creation of the Irish Constitution. He was admired by some but also criticised by others for decisions he took and for decisions he refused to take. This is the story of one of the most pioneering and divisive politicians in Irish history
