Description   Irish republican Dan Breen in the grounds of St John of God's Hospital, Stillorgan, County Dublin, in 1967. This still was taken during the filming of an interview with Breen, broadcast on 23 September 1967. The RTÉ Guide published an article about him on 22 September 1967; a still from this shoot was used to illustrate that article.
*N.B. There is an area of over-exposure on the left of the original negative*

Dan Breen participated in the first engagement with British forces in the War of Independence in 1919, at Soloheadbeg in County Tipperary. He was elected a TD for Tipperary in 1923 and was the first anti-Treaty deputy to take his seat in 1927. He went to America following his election defeat in 1927, but was subsequently re-elected and represented Tipperary in the Dáil from 1932-65.
