The Civil War Part 5 -

Legacy & Memory

(Exclusive Content)

Listen to the episode here:

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?
