About The Occupation of the Irish Consulate, New York, 1922 - John Gibney

The Occupation of the Irish Consulate, New York, 1922 - John Gibney

Music Icon

In December 1922 supporters and opponent of the new Irish Free State faced off against each other in the Irish consulate on Nassau St in New York. At stake were the huge sums of money raised in the US to fund the Irish independence struggle. By focusing on an almost trivial offshoot of the Irish Civil War, this lecture will explore how the Irish revolution resonated across the globe, and how story of the funds raised by the revolutionaries eventually became a struggle over who were the rightful heirs of the revolution itself.
