Reflections on the Irish War of Indepedence, 1919-1921

Over the coming months, Ireland’s Embassy and Consulates across the United States will join with the American Conference for Irish Studies & Irish Studies programs from coast to coast in a series of lectures and panels reflecting on the final – and perhaps most contested – years of the Irish Revolution, a period of intense political and social change in Ireland at the start of the 20th century.

The Embassy of Ireland, Consulate General of Ireland Chicago and DePaul University are delighted to present the second webinar panel in the "A Farther Shore" series. Ireland’s Ambassador to the United States, Dan Mulhall, will deliver remarks during the discussion.
