• The Fall of Dublin

In the early hours of Good Friday, 14 April 1922, anti - Treaty members of teh IRA occupied the Four Courts in Dublin. This was an open challenge to the authority of the Provisional Government and, on the morning of 28 June, the new National Army started to shell the building. These were the first shots fired in the Irish Civil War.

'The Fall of Dublin' is an account of the attack on the Four Courts and the subsequent fighting in Dublin in June and July 1922. Author, Liz Gillis has produced a fantastic account of this tumultuous period in Ireland's history, shedding new light on the effect of the fighting on the men and women involved in both sides of the fighting. 

'The Fall of Dublin' began with the shelling of the Four Courts was the beginning of the most divisive period in the State's history.
