This March, you are invited to join us for an early lunchtime event online at 12pm on 3rd March when a panel of experts from the DCU School of History and Geography, debate the extent to which civil war was avoidable in 1922.

A must-see for all Irish history buffs, the event will be chaired by Dr Daithi O Corrain, Chair of DCU’s MA in History and co-author of the acclaimed The Dead of the Irish Revolution.  He will be joined by brilliant colleagues as follows:
