Éamon de Valera first registered as George de Valero; changed some time before 1901 to Edward de Valera; 1882 – 1975) was Irelands leading political figure . His political career spanned over half a century, from 1917 to 1973; he served several terms as head of government and head of state. He also led the introduction of the Constitution of Ireland.
De Valera was born in the New York Nursery and Child’s Hospital in New York City in 1882 to an Irish mother; he stated that his parents, Catherine Coll (subsequently Mrs Wheelwright), an immigrant from Bruree, County Limerick, and Juan Vivion de Valera, a Cuban or Spanish settler and sculptor, were married on 18 September 1881 at St. Patrick’s Church located within the Greenville Section of Jersey City, NJ.However, exhaustive trawls through church and state records give no birth, baptismal, or death certificate information for anyone called Juan Vivion de Valera or de Valeros, an alternative spelling. The historian Sean Murphy has listed the long-term search for facts about Mr de Valera, allowing that he may have come from New Mexico, and was perhaps returning there at the time of his death.
Éamon de Valera was born on 14 October 1882 in New York City, the son of Catherine Coll, who was originally from Bruree, County Limerick, and Juan Vivion de Valera,described on the birth certificate as a Spanish artist born in the Basque Country, Spain.His parents were reportedly married on 18 September 1881 at St Patrick’s Church in Jersey City, New Jersey, but archivists have not located any marriage certificate or any birth, baptismal, or death certificate information for anyone called Juan Vivion de Valera (nor for “de Valeros”, an alternative spelling).
According to Coll, Juan Vivion died in 1885 leaving Coll and her child in poor circumstances.Éamon was taken to Ireland by his uncle Ned at the age of two. Even when his mother married a new husband in the mid-1880s, he was not brought back to live with her, but was reared instead by his grandmother, Elizabeth Coll, her son Patrick and her daughter Hannie, in County Limerick.
On de Valera’s original birth certificate, his name is given as George de Valero and his father is listed as Vivion de Valero. A fresh birth certificate was issued in 1910, in which his first name was officially changed to Edward and his father‘s surname given as “de Valera“. As a child, he was known as “Eddie” or “Eddy”.

Even the New York Times reporting his death had this on day on Valera’s Jewishness
On the real chance that some hasbara troll will edit this heres an image as of July 2018
ERGO THERE’S A GOOD POSSIBILITY EAMON DE VALERA WAS A JEW BASTARD……….LITERALLY
Aged sixteen, he won a scholarship. He was not successful in enrolling at two colleges in Limerick, but was accepted at Blackrock College, Dublin, at the instigation of his local curate.The college was founded by the Congregation of the Holy Ghost The Congregation in turn was founded bu Claude Poullart des Places born on February 25, 1679, in Rennes, the capital city of Brittany, France. Claude was enrolled at the age of nine or ten as a day student in the nearby Jesuit College of St. Thomas, thus beginning his lifelong association with the Society of Jesus.Claude was also a law graduate
Funnily enough the all knowing J Edgar Hoover head of the FBI for 40 odd years believed that Valera was a Portuguese Jew and kept a file on him
Then there’s the incredible reprieve Valera got after the Easter Rising
On 24 April 1916, the Easter Rising began. Forces commanded by de Valera occupied Boland’s Mill on Grand Canal Street in Dublin. After a week of fighting, the order came from Pádraig Pearse to surrender. De Valera was court-martialled, convicted, and sentenced to death, but the sentence was immediately commuted to penal servitude for life.
De Valera was the only “leader” of any consequence to escape the death penalty
EAMON DE VARELA WAS
THE FIRST PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC FROM 1921—1922
HEAD OF THE EXECUTIVE COUNCIL (equivalent to PMs post) 1932—1937
TAOISEACH (PRIME MINISTER) 1937—1948 1951–1952 1957–1959
During WW2 officials burned hundreds of secret files on the orders of Taoiseach Eamon de Valera as panic grew in Ireland over a possible Nazi invasion Hundreds of files held under lock and key in the office of the secretary of the Department of External Affairs were earmarked for destruction in Dublin on May 25, 1940. Source
These files also probably included the reasons for not hanging De Valera back in the 20s and an possible file about De Valeras ethnicity
Then there’s De Valeras relationship with Yitzhak HaLevi Herzog, Chief Rabbi of Ireland (Nicknamed the “Sinn Féin Rabbi” by the British due to his sympathy for the Irish Revolution and close friendship with Éamon de Valera
The Sinn Fenn Rabbis son Chaim was educated at Wesley College in Dublin and was later elected President of Israel in 1983.Reflecting on his Irish childhood in a Dublin accent he never lost Herzog said, “Ireland had no history of antisemitism, and while I did not feel outcast, I did feel different.”
Kind of tells one where the Sinn Fein Rabbis real loyalty lay his knowledge of Irish and love of Sinn Fein notwithstanding
The Rabbis son and grandson were and are active Israeli politicians …….
Éamon de Valera Forest is a forest in Israel, near Nazareth. It was planted in 1966 and named after Irish politician and statesman Éamon de Valera.
The planting and dedication of the forest was arranged by the Dublin Jewish community, in recognition of De Valera’s consistent support for Ireland’s Jews. The Irish Constitution of 1937, the drafting of which was personally supervised by De Valera the writing of the Constitution specifically gave constitutional protection to Jews. This was considered to be a necessary component to the constitution by Éamon de Valera because of the treatment of Jews elsewhere in Europe at the time.
In 1948 De Valera overruled the Department of Justice when it barred one hundred and fifty refugee Jewish children from traveling to Ireland as refugees.
Unconnected but here are two more fine Irish specimens who get a LOT of media attention
Lets end this post with a 2013 comment made by a blogger calling himself Not so Zionist in post called “Ireland’s Jewish Revolutionaries” made in a blog called AN SIONNACH FIONN run by an unnamed Irish Jew
“Ireland’s Jewish Revolutionaries”? Hmmm.
