29 The Anglo – Irish Treaty 1921

Irish Delegation at the Treaty negotiations.

On Episode 29 of the Irish History Show we look at the Anglo – Irish Treaty. The Anglo – Irish Treaty was signed on the 6th of December 1921 in London. The Treaty led to the establishment of the Irish Free State. It’s narrow approval by Dáil Éireann on the 7th of January 1922 would lead to a civil war. In this episode we will look at the negotiations leading up to the signing. We will also look at the content and some of the misconceptions that still surround it.

  1. Wonderful, terrifically informative show as always. My only criticism is a technical one: I found John Dorney difficult to hear. Adjust the mic for next time?
