Centenary of the Irish Civil War: a case-study for Europe – Council of Europe

Centenary of the Irish Civil War: a case-study for Europe
The Irish Civil war, which began in June 1922, remains one of the most tumultuous periods in Irish history. Following the Government of Ireland Act, 1920, and the setting up of the Northern Irish parliament, the signing of the Anglo-Irish Treaty in December 1921 compounded partition not only on the island of Ireland, but throughout Irish society as communities were divided into the pro-treaty and anti-treaty camps. This conflict caused unprecedented disruptions in a newly independent Ireland, but ultimately the Irish Free State which emerged in the Inter-war period was one of the most stable new democracies in Europe.
The event will be opened by Mr Breifne O’REILLY, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary, Permanent Representative of Ireland to the Council of Europe.
