Joe Stynes was born in Newbridge, Co. Kildare, Ireland on January 15, 1903. Athlete, patriot, father and friend are words synonymous with Joe Stynes, the renowned Clan na Gael leader of the latter half of the 20th century.

Around 1927, Stynes emigrated to the United States, settling in New York City. He remained active in both North American GAA and emigrant Irish Republican groups.... See more

He regularly returned to visit Ireland, and represented America in football internationals against Ireland at the Tailteann Games in Dublin in both 1928and 1932. During his 1928 trip, he turned out once more for Dublin in their Leinster Final defeat to Kildare He also represented New York in challenge tour matches against Mayo in 1932and Kerry in 1933. In December 1932, he won a Dublin junior club title with Sean McDermotts. He won New York state championships with Kildare in 1938[ and with Kilkenny as late as 1947.... See more

Stynes was politically active in Clan na Gael, and after 1948 was leader of the few branches that had remained loyal to the rump of the IRA.In 1938, he signed on behalf of the American GAA an Irish-American petition for the release of Frank Ryan, the IRA leader imprisoned by Franco's Nationalists during the Spanish Civil War for fighting in the International Brigades. After the decline of Clan na Gael, and the outbreak of the Northern Troubles, he was sympathetic to NORAID. He sided with Republican Sinn Féin after its 1986 split from Provisional Sinn Féin, and in 1987 he co-founded the National Irish Freedom Committee (NIFC; Irish: Cumann Na Saoirse Náisiúnta) for its American supporters

Joseph Andrew Stynes married Bridget Mahon 06-Jan-1930 in St Stephen RC Church at New York, New York. Joseph was born 15-Jan-1903 at Newbridge, Ireland. Joe was very active in the IRA which he joined in 1920. He was a friend of Michael Collins but after the treaty of December 1921 he sided with DeValera and the anti-treatyites. At Joe's death, Gerry Adams the Sinn Fein leader sent a message to the mourners. Seeking more details of Joe's descendants. Joseph died 29-Jan-1991 at New York, New York; Remains: Woodlawn Cemetery

Joe was #1 to all of us who worked with him in the Clan over the last twenty or more years of this (now betrayed) campaign, and although I miss his guidance and experience, at times I am grateful that he missed the full extent of the current treachery.

Joe was no novice to failure and betrayal. He witnessed the establishment of the Free State and with his brothers rose again in arms against the Treaty and the traitors who betrayed the Republic, for which they had fought and bled. He was jailed for his part in the Civil War and upon his release he left a divided Ireland and sailed for America.

He joined the Clan upon his arrival in New York and remained faithful for life to the precepts of the Clan's Fenian legacy.

My years with Stynes and Sheehan as my mentors opened for me a connection with a veritable Who's Who of Irish Republicanism stretching back to the Black and Tan era and the Civil War.

Cosgrove, Healey and 0 Higgins were judged and found wanting as were Mac Eoin, Collins and Lemass. The arch fiend de Valera was skewered each and every week, as was Sean McBride, who deserted the Movement in the dark days before World War 11, and de Valera's programs of the 1940s (that lasted past the death of Sean MacCaughey in 1946).

The heroes of the long struggle came alive once more. Cathal Brugha, Maire McSweeney, Sean Tracey, Dan Breen, John Joe Sheehy, John Joe Rice, Sean Russell, Liam Lynch, Liam Mellows, Harry Boland, Peadar 0 Donnell, Frank Ryan, Joe McGarrity, George Plant, Harry White, Joe Crystal, the three Mac's, Charlie Kerins and Richard Goss. South, 0 Hanlon and the Edentubber martyrs were remembered with pride tempered with regret.

But it wag the martyrs of this campaign that brought the struggle full circle and unbroken. The Hunger Strikers, Loch Gall and the Gibraltar Martyrs were spoken of by younger members of the Camp who had known or served with many of the martyrs. But it was the murder of our fellow camp member Liam Ryan in 1989, that brought it back home to all of us. In old Joe's own words; "A shame and a waste of a brave Irish Patriot."

Now before we create the image of Joe Stynes as a single faceted individual, we must remember that this great Fenian was also a repeat All Ireland Champion, a stalwart of the New York GAA and the father and grandfather of a large and loving family, and a man who followed baseball, football and other American sports, and I would be remiss if I didn't mention his keen appreciation of the French art of cognac making

Great website Kieran !!!
Many people from around the world have no idea of the atrocities the Irish people have had to endure throughout history.
I live in Australia and have irish heritage, recently started studying my ancestry and have learned much.
My grandparents hardly ever talked about the tough times they experienced during their lives in Ireland.
I am shocked and appalled at the treatment of the Irish people by the British government....
We need more websites like this to spread awareness all over the world!
I have learned much from your writing and discussions.....Keep up the great work !

I love the history told nearly first hand. Blood kin to me Owen Coon, Carleton Coon, Keenan Coon, me, and other family members did loads of contraband moving under the master embargo runner, Capt. J.M. Decker. All to help the fight of ridding Ireland, of inbred yellow teethed feral sanguinary killers-UK scum

Very interesting site. Thank you for your work and dedication to doing it. So many have given their all for Ireland and so proud they were to do so. So many sad and terrible times and crimes against Ireland. But she has risen above it and stands tall in the world of freedom against tyranny. "Shoulder to shoulder we will answer Irelands call." And they did and always will. Proud I am my father was born in Ireland. Charles John - Cahersiveen Co. Kerry 1917.
