Ireland: A Century of Troubles, 1916–1998

  • Take in the cities which served as centres of conflict: Cork, Dublin, Derry, and Belfast
  • Explore a whole century of conflict in Ireland, from the War of Independence to Civil War
  • Guaranteed departure

Ireland is the only part of the British Isles that has seen a full-scale guerrilla insurgency, full-scale civil war, and full-scale urban insurrection during the last century. Some of this is within living memory. This tour is about explaining the Irish conflict in the 20th century as the essential background to Irish politics in the 21st. The visits range from remote rural ambush sites like Kilmichael in Cork to modern urban battlefields like the Bogside in Derry, from British prisons like Kilmainhaim in Dublin and Crumlin Road in Belfast to historic sites like the Walls of Derry and Dublin’s General Post Office.

As part of the tour, participants will hear eyewitness testimony from some of those involved in the Troubles across the political divide, and they will see the barricades, the murals, the flags, and the graffiti that still mark the former front-lines, the current truce-lines, where sectarian divisions have been fossilised for two decades.
