The Burning of the Custom House | May 1921
De Valera’s return from the United States saw a disagreement over the conduct of the War of Independence. He believed that the ambushes and assassinations were mere “pinpricks” and that to bring the British to the negotiating table they would need large propaganda spectacles. Months of planning eventually led to the attack on the Custom House; seen by some as the blow that broke the British military and by others as a disaster which almost destroyed the IRA.

The Poisonous Friendship of Collins and Brugha | Jan - Mar 1921
As the War of Independence approached its conclusion another conflict was taking shape; that between Michael Collins and Cathal Brugha. Most often Brugha is castigated as petty, bitter and jealous, trying to knock down the man who was single handedly fighting off the British. The reality is that Brugha was unnerved by the power Collins possessed, alongside his leadership of a shadowy, secret organisation...

De Valera in America Part 5 | Aug - Dec 1920
While de Valera had plans to remain on in the United States into 1921, his stay came to an end in December. By then he had moved against the Friends of Irish Freedom and created a new organisation, though he had left before it grew to over 700,000 members. He would leave as quietly has he had arrived, but he and the Irish Delegation had done much to promote Ireland's cause, as well as doing much to unbalance Irish-America.

The Kilmichael Ambush | November 28th 1920
Two men are claimed to have been shot during the false surrender, not 3 as given here. The Kilmichael Ambush stands as one of the most famous actions of the War of Independence but remains shrouded in mystery. An audacious operation which boosted Republican morale and shocked the British government, debate continues over the false surrender alleged by Tom Barry and suggestions he had prisoners executed in cold blood. While the truth is probably somewhere in the middle, it continues to cause controversy 100 years on.

Bloody Sunday | November 21st 1920
On the morning of the 21st of November 1920 teams of IRA men shot and killed British Intelligence agents throughout Dublin in a concentrated attack. Hours later British forces responded by entering a Gaelic Football match at Croke Park and firing into the crowd, resulting in the deaths of 14 civilians. Immortalized as Bloody Sunday, just one of a number of violent days in Irish history to be given the title, the events and those involved have become legendary, to the point of becoming myth. Who were the men who were shot dead that morning and what was “the Cairo Gang”?

The Siege of Tralee and the battle that never happened | Nov 1920
At the end of October 1920 a nationwide offensive was ordered to coincide with the execution of Kevin Barry. Though called off at the last moment, attacks went ahead in Kerry, leading to what became known as the Siege of Tralee. While the British government had to finally step in and order the Black and Tans to lift the siege, Britain would stage and film a fake victory over the IRA, publicising it as the Battle of Tralee. Today, the images are still used in books and articles relating to the time period, with many believing them to be real.

"What's my life compared with the cause?" MacSwiney and Barry | Oct 1920
Unwilling to create another martyr like Thomas Ashe, British authorities had taken to releasing hunger strikers and then re arresting them when they recovered. When released IRA prisoners would often go on the run and RIC morale was crumbling as they lost faith in the British government to protect them. When the Lord Mayor of Cork began a hunger strike, fully expecting to be released in a few days, the British felt they had to make a stand. Over 74 days the spectacle played out in the world media, punctuated by the court martial of 18 year old Kevin Barry.

The Death of Seán Treacy | Oct 1920
In October 1920 the new British intelligence structure operating from Dublin Castle closed in around Dan Breen, convinced he was responsible for the killing of a high ranking RIC officer in Cork. He would be hospitalized after a dramatic battle in Drumcondra but British agents would continue to stalk his close friend Seán Treacy.

The Auxiliaries and the Essex Regiment | July - Sept 1920
Deployed alongside the Black and Tans and sent to make Ireland “an appropriate hell for those whose trade is agitation”, poor conditions and a lack of a clear objective would lead the Auxiliaries on a war path of drunkenness, destruction and murder. Though consisting of just 2,100 men they would be the IRA’s main opponent for the duration of the War of Independence and would take part, as victors and losers, in many of the most famous ambushes in the revolution. The Auxiliaries continue to cast a dark shadow over Irish history and in the places they would serve afterwards, from Bandon to Hebron. This episode also looks at the Essex Regiment whose members would fight a personal war with the West Cork Flying Column under the command of Tom Barry.

De Valera in America Part 4 | Apr - Aug 1920
With both major parties nominating candidates for the US Presidential election, de Valera and the Friends of Irish Freedom tried to put their differences aside to campaign for a resolution on Irish Independence. However hostilities broke out again at the Republican Convention in June where de Valera would actively sabotage the success achieved by Cohalan, arguing that it was harmful to Ireland’s interests. Following the capture and publication by British authorities of letters critical of the Friends of Irish Freedom support for de Valera indicated to him that it was time to push for control of the organisation.

Collins, Clarke and Caravaggio | June 1920
From Michelangelo da Caravaggio to Michael Collins and from The Taking of Christ to The Terrorising of Clarke, Italian Renaissance Art and the Irish Republican Army aren’t topics often discussed in the same breath, but an act of revenge and the grief it caused would link forever the names of Collins, Clarke and Caravaggio with District Inspector and Dr. Lea-Wilson and grant for them all a unique place in the history of art and of the Irish Revolution.

Mutiny in Listowel and India | June - July 1920
June 1920 saw the new military figures appointed to take charge of policing in Ireland prepare the ground for legislation which would give British forces a freer hand in dealing with the IRA. However, attempts to use the RIC to assist the army as scouts started a mutiny in Kerry and the publication of an inflammatory speech given by the Divisional Commissioner led to his killing a few weeks later. At the other side of the world reports of conditions in Ireland caused many Irishmen in the Connaught Ranger to refuse to carry out military duties. As British tactics in Ireland hardened, this was a sign of the resistance they would face.

Lord French and the Reorganisation of Dublin Castle | Apr - May 1920
Most discussions on the life of Lord French end with his removal from command of the British Expeditionary Forces during the First World War but after this event he would have a dramatic effect on the course of Irish history. In command of the Home Forces during the 1916 Rising, he would support the executions carried out by Sir John Maxwell and later as Lord Lieutenant he would use largely unsuccessful coercive measures, first in an attempt to force through conscription and later to combat the IRA. His reign was eventually brought to an end in May 1920 with a massive reorganisation of Dublin Castle and the deployment there of men who were prepared to accept a peaceful solution to the Irish Question.
