The outbreak of the Second World War severely debilitated the transnational networks related to militant republicanism. In Ireland, the Irish Republican Army was outlawed and lengthy internment was imposed on suspected republicans. In the US, the Clan na Gael was forced to contend with surveillance from the Federal Bureau of Investigation which affected highly influential republicans. This chapter reveals the Clan’s public and underground activities during this highly restrictive period. Also included are details related to the actions undertaken by the US government to infiltrate and undermine the transatlantic republican networks.
