Podcast: Commemorating the Irish Civil War 100 Years on

With John Dorney and Cathal Brennan, in association with the Irish History Show.

We discuss:

  • How the  Irish Civil War is being commemorated (or not) 100 years on.
  • How the conflict is interpreted today – democrats vs dictators or the unfinished revolution?
  • The enduring mythology surround Michael Collins
  • The difficulty in commemorating 1922 in an all-Ireland context
  • How atrocities of that era can be remembered today.
