Abstract

Although far from the centres of conflict on the Continent, interwar Ireland was also exposed to the influence of extreme left and right-wing political movements. Overall, most Irish nationalists adopted an uncompromisingly anti-Communist stance and used the lack of political stability in East-Central Europe to emphasise the significance of Catholic values following the 1917 Bolshevik revolution. The present paper examines the attitude of Irish intellectuals to extreme political changes in post-war Hungary. It also aims to highlight the complexity of the “red scare” and its legacy in relation to anti-Semitism and even the border question throughout the 1930s
