In a supplement of the “Dublin Gazette” the Lord Lieutenant and Privy Council of Ireland, declared that the association known as Dáil Éireann, appears to them to be a dangerous association. It was formed and first employed for all the purposes of the associations known as the Sinn Féin organisation, Sinn Féin clubs, the Irish Volunteers and Cumann na mBan.   The order to prohibit and supress it within the 32 counties and six county boroughs of Ireland was signed by the Chief Secretary and General Sir Frederick Shaw, Commander-in-Chief of the forces in Ireland.
