The Road to War
(The War of Independence III)

An ambush at Soloheadbeg, Tipperary in January 1919 is often cited as the opening shots of the War of Independence. However as early as 1917 political tensions were leading to violence across Ireland. Several people were killed in 1917 and 1918. This podcast looks at this descent into war. 

The episode is based around the story of Edward Murray, a young Dubliner who played a key role in these events.
