    Abstract

    In the context of contemporary Irish History Colonel Dan Bryan has played a significant, but controversial role in a period which has been well documented but where he has largely gone unnoticed. The aim of this thesis is twofold; to examine the life and career of Colonel Dan Bryan and in the process to give the reader an accurate depiction of the Irish Military Intelligence organisation from it’s foundation up to 1945. The aims are compatible and lend themselves to each other. An in depth analysis of Dan Bryan’s character and the role he played within the intelligence organisation serves to illuminate much about the organisation itself.
