Yann Fouéré (26 July 1910 – 20 October 2011) was a Breton nationalist and a European federalist.[1] His French birth certificate names him as Jean Adolphe Fouéré (French name, as the French State at the time did not allow Breton names). He was born in Aignan, Gers.[2] and died in St.Brieuc, Brittany.

He fled France after the French liberation in 1945 and took Irish citizenship in the early 1950s. One of the founders of the Celtic League along with his compatriot Alan Heusaff, he lived to be 101 years old.[3]

Fouéré was alleged to have been a collaborator during WW2, but was fully exonerated in 1955 following his voluntary return to France to face trial.[4]

Family[edit]

His daughter is Irish actress Olwen Fouéré.
