Its often stated the Civil War dominated life in Ireland over the past century. While this is true in some respects, the full picture is more complex. In this, the final episode of my exclusive supporters series, historian Dr Brian Hanley and myself explore the legacy, memory and interpretation of the conflict over the past century. We also discussed how we understand the war in the 21st century and whether this reflects our values rather than the history of the 1920s.
The episode also includes extensive discussions on the films Michael Collins and The Wind that Shakes the Barley. Did they influence modern understandings of the war? Are these movies accurate portrayals of the conflict?
