County Louth and the Irish Revolution 1912-1923 (book)
Donal Hall & Martin Maguire
County Louth and the Irish Revolution, 1912-1923 explores the local activism of the IRA and how the revolution was experienced by rural and urban labourers, RIC men, Republican women, cultural activists, and Big House families. Events were increasingly shaped for all these groups by the developing reality of partition, transforming a marginal county into a borderland and creating a zone of new violence and banditry.
County Louth and the Irish Revolution, 1912-1923 documents the complexity of the local experience as the national revolution merged with long-established antagonisms and traditions, the effects of which have shaped the county ever since.
