A history of partition from the 1920 Government of Ireland Act to Brexit

Published in Hedge School Recordings, Podcasts, Uncategorized

While the constitutional outcomes of the revolutionary period have evolved over time, one has remained constant over the past century—partition. While a previous Hedge School in December 2020 examined how that came about in 1920/21, this discussion will focus on its effects over the following century, up to and including the uncertainly caused by Brexit and growing calls for a border poll on Irish unity. Tune in to History Ireland editor, Tommy Graham, in discussion with Paul BewBrian HanleyMartin Mansergh, and Margaret O’Callaghan.
