About The Handover of Power and the British Withdrawal from Ireland, 1922 - John Gibney

The Handover of Power and the British Withdrawal from Ireland, 1922 - John Gibney

Music Icon

In January 1922 the British handed over power to a new Irish government and prepared to leave 26 of Ireland’s 32 counties. The handover and British withdrawal fell between the Treaty split of January 1922 and the outbreak of the Irish Civil War in June 1922 and is usually overshadowed by both. This lecture explores how a British military presence that had lasted for over 700 years came to a swift but uncertain, end.
