War of Independence Centenary Series - May 1921

  • Dates: May 24, 2021
  • Time: 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM
  • Overview

    The War of Independence Centenary Series continues with an in-depth look at the events of May 1921. The burning of the Customs House was a famous act of symbolic destruction by the IRA in Dublin, but also a military disaster for the organization. Two elections in Ireland took place in 1921, as a result of the Government of Ireland Act 1920 to establish the House of Commons of Northern Ireland and the House of Commons of Southern Ireland. Attacks, reprisals, and burnings continued throughout the country, while there were muted attempts to have de Valera and Carson or Craig meet to discuss partition.
