This document, co-written by Professor E.T. Nevin and Bishop James Moynagh was issued on behalf of the Common Market Study Group. It states that:

This is the fifth pamphlet on the Common Market to be published by the Common Market Study Group. If you are impressed by the pamphlet’s arguments we would invite you to join the mass-membership, campaigning organisation, The Common Market Defence Campaign that has been launched by the CMSG. The Defence Campaign is working towards a ‘No’ vote in the referendum which will have to be held in March or April. If the people refuse to change the Constitution, as they will be asked to do in the referendum, then Ireland cannot join the EEC and the government will have to negotiate an Association Arrangement or a General Trading Agreement with the Common Market.

Dr. E.T. Nevin was professor of Economics at the University of Swansea and a former employee of the ESRI. Dr. James Moynagh was former Bishop of Calabar and Parish Priest of Annaduff. Both were profoundly antagonistic to Irish membership of the Common Market.

” Both were profoundly antagonistic to Irish membership of the Common Market. ”

Why briefly? Were their fears unfounded? Was Anthony Coughlan (who writes for Village magazine nowadays) an acquaintance?

All excellent questions. My sense is that there may have been a rather conservative strand to their anti-EEC thinking but any further information very welcome.

“Dr. James Moynagh was former Bishop of Calabar and Parish Priest of Annaduff.”

There has to be a song about that. Was he the original ‘Wreck of the Calabar’?

He was a missionary in Calabar in Nigeria but had to return to Ireland after the civil war there because foreign missionaries in breakaway Biafra were accused of siding with the losers.
