On January 21 1919 , Dáil Éireann sat for the first time at the Mansion House in Dublin and declared its independence from Britain which would begin a two and half year war for Irish Independence . 
 
At the first sitting of Dáil Éireann , the government ratified the Easter Proclamation of 1916 which Read .. "We declare the right of the people of Ireland to the ownership of Ireland and the unfettered control of Irish Destinies , to be Sovereign and Indefeasible"

Today exactly 101 years on , while we celebrate the vision of our founding fathers we recognise that on 1 November 1993 , with the signing of the Treaty on European Union (Maastricht Treaty) our Independence was given up to the European Commission . The vision of our founding fathers for an Independent Sovereign Ireland was replaced for the vision of the Man pictured below - Jean Monnet .
