As stated in the document commentary:
Clan na Gael and I.R.A. Veterans of America Inc. were – it appears, former Irish Civil War veterans. In the aftermath of the death of Desmond Swanton and injury of Gerry Madden, they offered to raise funds to help the recovery of the latter. They sent a delegation to meet Tom Maguire in Mayo during this period and in New York they held Field Days, Easter Sunday Commemorations and advertised the sale of Easter Lilies.
