Description

Join this walking tour to chart the revolutionary period of 1913-1923, a decade of division, and war, that created the independent Irish state and partitioned the island of Ireland.  The tour begins in the heart of Trinity College Dublin, founded in 1592 A.D. by Queen Elizabeth I. Discover how in 1913, Ireland was a constituent part of the UK and by 1923, an independent Irish Free State had emerged from the shadow of Civil War.  Continue to outside Liberty Hall, where the rebellion of 1916 began at 12 noon on 24th April, as the involvement of the labor movement under James Connolly is explained by your guide.  After a brief stop at the Abbey Theatre to discuss the cultural context of the Gaelic Revival and W.B. Yeats, arrive in front of the General Post Office, the headquarters of the Easter Rising, a pivotal moment for Irish independence.  Travel across the city, making stops at Ha’Penny Bridge and Eagle Tavern, before arriving at Dublin City Hall. In the grounds of Dublin Castle, learn how Michael Collins waged a campaign against the Special Branch of the Royal Irish Constabulary and British Military Intelligence.  Your last stop is the Four Courts by the River Liffey. Here your guide will tell you about the Irish Civil War of 1922-23. The republican movement that had been so successful split over the issue of the Treaty and two sides came to blows which started an 11-month civil war.
