In 1938, Douglas Hyde became the first President of Ireland. With his non-partisan background as a Protestant nationalist and a leading figure in the language revival, he was an inspired choice for the office. He made the office an inclusive one and determined to be a president for all the people of Ireland.

He was to the forefront in providing leadership on the key political issues of his time. He also played a highly significant, but previously unheralded, role in the state’s policy of neutrality during the Second World War.

Forgotten Patriot shows Hyde’s considerable impact on the development and perception of the office of President of Ireland.
