Centenary of the Irish Race Congress, Paris, 21-28 January 1922

Within weeks of the ratification of the Treaty by Dáil Éireann an ‘Irish Race Congress’ assembled in Paris representing Irish organizations from twenty-two countries.

Inevitably the Treaty split overshadowed its proceedings.

To address these and related questions join History Ireland editor, Tommy Graham, in discussion with David Brundage, Darragh Gannon, Donal McCracken, and Anne Marie O’Brien.
