War of Independence Centenary Series - December 1921

Join Executive Director Dr. Elizabeth Stack for a continuation of our Centenary Series. The Treaty negotiations were concluded, and the plenipotentiaries signed it on December 6th. It was recommended to the Dáil in a series of very tense debates held in late December, but was rejected by de Valera and others, splitting Republican opinion. This talk will look at the public and private Dáil debates, as well as the occasional outbreaks of violence still happening in Northern Ireland.
