Overview Overview
 

This module examines the major events in twentieth century Ireland as it went from being part of the United Kingdom, ruled directly from Westminster to a Dominion, a Republic and a member of international bodies such as the United Nations and the European Union

The module examines key issues such as the rise of the physical force nationalism, cultural nationalism, feminism, the labour movement and the increasing power of the Catholic Church. As well as analysing the major figures, this module also pays attention to the lives of ordinary people, from the experiences of the slums of tenement Dublin at the turn of the century to the events of the civil rights movement in Northern Ireland in the 1960s and 70s.
