Booklaunch of Ireland 1922: Independence, Partition, Civil War, edited by Darragh Gannon and Fearghal McGarry
We are delighted to be able to launch Ireland 1922: Independence, Partition, Civil War, edited by Darragh Gannon and Fearghal McGarry - an important collection of interdisciplinary essays, published by the Royal Irish Academy in January 2022. Both editors, Dr Darragh Gannon (UCD) and Prof Fearghal McGarry (QUB) will speak to the book's themes and approaches, and Dr Margaret O'Callaghan (QUB) will give her assessment of its contribution to understanding that momentous year in Ireland's history.
Fifty essays. Fifty contributors. One extraordinary year.
From the handover of Dublin Castle, to the dawning of a new border across the island, to the fateful divisions of the civil war, Ireland 1922 provides a snapshot of a year of turmoil, tragedy and, amidst it all, state-building as the Irish revolution drew to a close.
