On this episode of the Irish History Show we discussed the current commemorations of the Irish Civil War and how it is being remembered 100 years on. We covered:
- 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 surrounding Michael Collins
- The difficulty in commemorating 1922 in an all-Ireland context
- How atrocities of that era can be remembered today.
