Afternoon with the Authors – The Irish Civil War and the North: Refugees, Pogroms and Civil War, 1922-23

John Dorney is the author of The Civil War in Dublin: The Fight for the Irish Capital, 1922–1924, published by Merrion Press in 2017. Dorney, in an illustrated talk, contends with popular misconceptions and little-known episodes regarding the Northern dimension of the Civil War: how Belfast refugees flooded over the border to Dublin in 1922; how the IRA boycott of Belfast helped to spark Civil War south of the border; how Northern IRA men fought on the Free State side of the Civil War.
