9780717167265: A City in Civil War: Dublin 1921-4

This work is dedicated to detailing the actions in and around Dublin's General Post Office during the Easter Rising in 1916. The building served as headquarters for the Irish Volunteers and the Citizen Army, led by Padraig Pearse and James Connolly, and was shelled in the suppression of the Uprising. The newly proclaimed Irish Republic was quickly and brutally suppressed but the memory of the heroism depicted that week and of the executions that followed changed Irish history forever.

Descrizione libro Gill, Ireland, 2015. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In the concluding volume of Padraig Yeates critically acclaimed Dublin at War trilogy, the author turns his attention to the Civil War. The Truce that heralded the end of the War of Independence in July 1921 proved no more than a prelude to renewed conflict on the capital s streets as many of the men who worked for Michael Collins in the fight against the British now turned their skills with deadly effect on former comrades. For some Dubliners, including many southern Unionists, British ex-servicemen and anti-Treaty republicans, the city became a hostile environment with the City Council and Dublin Metropolitan Police abolished by the new Free State. Yet, life remained a cycle of grinding poverty for the city s slum dwellers. The main beneficiary of the chaos was the Catholic Church, which tightened its grip on vital social services with tragic consequences for thousands of the marginalised, while an embattled government was too preoccupied with securing its grip on power to provide for its own citizens. As in his previous work, the author uncovers unknown and neglected aspects of the Irish revolution in the capital and their impact on the rest of the country.Praise for Padraig Yeates Dublin at War trilogy A powerful social history .reminds us that for all the headline grabbing events, putting bread on the table was still the most important priority for most Professor Diarmaid Ferriter, The Irish Independent Reminds the reader of how daily life went on side by side with the great events of history.
