The Government of Ireland Act 1920—100 years of partition.

Published in Hedge School Recordings, Podcasts, Uncategorized

Originally conceived as a ‘temporary’ amendment to the Third Home Rule Act, on the statute book since 1914, the 1920 Government of Ireland Act was presciently derided by the Freeman’s Journal as ‘the Dismemberment of Ireland Bill’—partition was the only element of it to endure.  How did it come about and what were its effects over the following century?  Listen to History Ireland editor, Tommy Graham, discuss these questions with Dr Martin ManserghCormac Moore, Dr Margaret O’Callaghan and Professor Brian Walker.
