For those who might doubt the extent of Irish republican sympathy toward Hitler and the Nazis, here is a verse from the Irish Republican War News of November 1940:
Oh here's to Adolf Hitler,
Who made the Britons squeal,
Sure before the fight is ended
They will dance an Irish reel.
The IRA wanted Adolf Hitler and the Nazis to win the 2nd World War. believing that a Nazi victory over Britain would hasten a United Ireland.
