Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The executions during the Irish Civil War took place during the guerrilla phase of the Irish Civil War (October 1922 - May 1923) This phase of the war was bitter, and both sides, the government forces of the Irish Free State and the anti-Treaty Irish Republican Army (IRA) insurgents, used executions and terror in what developed into a cycle of atrocities. From November 1922, the Free State government embarked on a concerted policy of executing Republican prisoners in order to bring the war to an end. Many of those killed had previously been allies and in some cases close friends (during the Irish War of Independence 1919-1921), of those who ordered their deaths in the civil war.show more
