This one's for you Faughanballagh, since you obviously put no research into your comments and persist in writing complete nonsense.
At the beginning of WW2 Ireland declared itself neutral. DeValera, the taoiseach of the day, met with the ambassadors of the combative nations to inform them of this. When he met the head of the German legation, a Dr. Hempel, he informed him that Ireland would have to show a certain deference to Britain as it was our biggest trading partner.
Some examples of this deference include:
1. Allowing thousands of Irishmen to go to the UK to join the British Army.
2. Providing meteorological reports to the UK, while at the same time denying that information to the Axis.
3. Interning all Axis servicemen who landed or washed up here, but returning Allied servicemen to the UK. (Some Allied personnel were interned to keep up appearances).
4. Cracking down on the IRA to prevent them interfering with the British war effort. Many IRA men were interned without trial, some died on hunger strike & I think a few were executed.
5. Allowing British rescue boats to be based along the west coast. Allowing the British a flight corridor to the Atlantic from Northern Ireland over Donegal.
These are hardly the actions of a pro-German government, next you'll be telling us that German U-boats were re-fuelling in Kerry.
As for German spies, the vast majority of them were complete amateurs who were caught within days of their landing. They included a circus strongman and an Indian. The only German agent who was halfway competent was Hermann Goertz, who landed in 1940 and managed to evade capture until 1941.
