Educational Resources - Ireland 1922
The year 1922 in Ireland was pivotal; it witnessed three major events that ushered in the final phase of Ireland's revolution - the ratification of the Anglo Irish Treaty leading to the establishment of the Irish Free State, the final confirmation of partition when Northern Ireland opted out of that Free State settlement, and the outbreak of the Irish Civil War.
These resources provide supplemental material and new perspectives for students and teachers studying the Partition of Ireland; they allow students to explore the contemporary and historical issues raised by events that took place throughout Ireland in the year 1922 and build upon the course material's emphasis on the interpretation of secondary source material and primary source analysis.
This teaching resource is based on Ireland 1922: Independence, Partition, Civil War, edited by Darragh Gannon and Fearghal McGarry. Ireland 1922 consists of fifty concise and illustrated essays, each of which addresses a particular event that took place in 1922 to explore a broader theme related to the Irish revolution or its legacy.
Our resources were developed in collaboration with the History Teachers' Association of Ireland and of Northern Ireland and they cater for A Level pupils, as well as Leaving Certificate students. You can download them at the links below:
