Aftermath of Revolution
Sligo, 1921-23

Michael Farry (author)
Paperback / softback,
Publication date:
14th June 2000


This is a fascinating study of the effects of the Irish Civil War in Sligo, a relatively quiet county, during the War of Independence, which proved to be one of the most troublesome areas for the Free State Army in the Civil War. For a long time, the west of Ireland had been largely overlooked in studies of the war. Farry discusses the social and economic effects of the war: the build-up to conflict, the progress and geography of the war, the disruption to the daily lives of citizens, education, transportation, law and order, also there is a chapter on how the Protestant community was affected. This is a highly successful marriage of political, social, and economic history. Michael Farry teaches in Trim Co., Meath.
