Short biography
Kevin Boland (1917-2001) was an Irish Government Minister and former TD in Dáil Eireann for the Fianna Fáil party. His father, Gerald, had also been a TD and Minister for the party. Boland held several Ministerial posts including Defence, Social Welfare and Local Government. He was a Minister from 1957-70 until he resigned in sympathy due to the sacking of two of his colleagues as a result of the Arms Crisis which would result in the Arms Trial. These events threatened to split Fianna Fáil and Boland challenged the then leader, Jack Lynch at the subsequent party conference. Having been unsuccessful he founded a new party which failed electorally.
