Very rare document about the support of American Irish to the Irish Independence

The Friends of Irish Freedom was an Irish-American Republican organization founded at the third Irish Race Convention held in New York (4–5 March 1916). Supported by the United Irish League, the Ancient Order of Hibernians and other leading Irish-American organizations.

The Organisation's aims were to 'encourage and assist any movement that will tend to bring about the National Independence of Ireland. Among the first members of the Executive Committee were Victor Herbert (President), Thomas Hughes Kelly (Treasurer) and John D. Moore (Secretary). An office was set up in Sweden and relations established with Imperial Germany. The Friends of Irish Freedom supported the 1916 Rising and in the months following, raised $350,000 through the Irish Relief Fund to assist dependents of many who fought in the Rising.
