The Irish Revolution:  Partition, Treaty & Civil War, 1918 – ‘25

Over the next few years we on this island, North and South, will be remembering some of the most shaping and conflicted events in Irish history.  The critical period 1918-22 witnessed the First Dail, the Anglo-Irish War, Partition, the birth of two Irish states, intense violence in the North and a bitter Civil War in the South.

The key roles of de Valera, Collins, Carson, Craig, Lloyd George and Devlin will be examined.  A particular focus will be on events in Tyrone and Fermanagh and the impact of Churchill’s ‘dreary steeples’.

The aim of the series is to foster cross-community dialogue and mutual understanding.
