Civil War in Connacht, 1922-23



EUR 16.59

Very little has been written about the Irish Civil War in Connacht. In this book Nollaig O Gadhra draws extensively on notes compiled by J. J. Waldron of Tuam, placing them in a national context. He gives a breakdown of the IRA command in 1922 and a remarkable description of the stand-off during the summer of 1922 when the British left their barracks and the rival pro- and anti-Treaty forces competed for possession of the vacated buildings.
