Anglo Irish Treaty Irish delegation

Mondays at the Mess: The Anglo-Irish Treaty with Donal Fallon

Free event to mark the 100th anniversary of the treaty establishing the Irish Free State


Life, Visit

Less than six years after the Easter Rising, men who had once been detained as prisoners in Richmond Barracks were now debating Irish sovereignty in London.

What was contained within the Anglo-Irish Treaty and what wasn’t? Was the Treaty alone the catalyst for Civil War? Where did the Irish public stand on it? In this online talk, Historian Donal Fallon will explore the document that ended one war and began another.

Donal Fallon is a historian, broadcaster, author and curator from Dublin. Formerly Historian in Residence to Dublin City Council, he is the author of numerous studies of twentieth-century Dublin, including the recently published ‘14 Henrietta Street: From Tenements to Suburbia, 1922 – 1979 ’. He produces the Three Castles Burning podcast and has contributed to publications including Jacobin, Dublin Historical Review, Saothar and The Irish Times. Donal Fallon is Social Historian for Dublin City Council Culture Company.

Mondays at the Mess is a series of talks at Richmond Barracks that celebrate the rich stories and experiences of the local community, past and present.

The Talk will take place online using Zoom, a free online meeting platform. You will need an internet connection and a compatible device (e.g. computer, laptop, iPad, tablet, phone) to access Zoom. Please note, the zoom link to the Talk is contained within your reminder email which is sent 24 hours prior to the event.
