    That’s an interesting one as around 80,000 irish were serving in the British Army in WW2 and the war industries in the UK provided jobs for many irish men and women.

    I don't think there is much historical record of Nazi intentions towards the Irish Free State. I might assume that Hitler would have wanted to take it over and complete his portfolio in the British Isles.

    Then some in Ireland would have rejoiced. And many more would not.
