Crowd-funding the revolution—the underground administration

New History Ireland Hedge School PODCAST

Crowd-funding the revolution—the underground administration

Dáil Éireann sought not only to take back the political control lost in the 1800 Act of Union, but also the fiscal and monetary powers lost with the merger of the Irish and British exchequers in 1817. Italso established a parallel legal system, the ‘Dáil Courts’, and, especially after the local elections of 1920, sought to control local government.

To assess the success of these efforts join History Ireland editor, Tommy Graham, in discussion with John Borgonovo, Caoimhe Nic Dháibhéid, Patrick O’Sullivan Greene, and Brian Hughes.
