Anglo-Irish Relations1922 - 1932
The ‘Restless Dominion’
1st Dáil Eireann
Paris Peace Conference
Seán T. O’Kelly was sent to the Paris Peace Conference in 1919.
Although unsuccessful in achieving official recognition, O’Kelly’s work can be seen as a forerunner of official diplomatic relations from 1921 on.
Both France & USA were unwilling to recognise the Irish Republic at this time, as their alliance with the UK was central to the Paris Peace Conference.
