Dublin was one of the cockpits of the Irish Revolution. It was a key venue for many of the political and military upheavals of the War of Independence and Civil War, which went hand in hand with the realities of life for ordinary Dubliners who lived through these years. From Dublin Castle and the Four Courts to College Green and the Custom House, this tour, based on John Gibney and Donal Fallon’s Revolutionary Dublin, 1912–1923: A Walking Guide (The Collins Press), will explore the architectural, political, military and social history of Dublin from the Easter Rising to the end of the Civil War.
