Irish papers, 1919-1966, bulk 1921-1927.

Correspondence, legal documents and court transcripts, pamphlets, photographs, and clippings reflecting Finerty's interest in and involvement with Irish political events and social movements in both Ireland and America, especially during the 1920s. Much of the material stems from his role as legal counsel to Eamon de Valera in litigation with the Irish Free State over bond funds and from his involvement in the American Association for the Recognition of the Irish Republic (AARIR), an organization created by De Valera in 1920. Also included are materials concerning his several trips to Ireland, treatment of prisoners in Ireland in the 1920s, and legal issues.
