Marú in Íarthar Chorcaí (Murder in West Cork)

Over two nights in April 1922, thirteen Protestant men were shot dead in West Cork.

According to Peter Hart’s 1998 book The IRA and its enemies, they were shot because they were Protestants—sectarian killings carried out by members of the IRA—and ‘the nationalist revolution had also been a sectarian one’.

Hart’s controversial conclusions sparked a ‘history war’ that has raged ever since.

Join History Ireland editor Tommy Graham to discuss the documentary with Brian Hanley, Simon Kingston, Eve Morrison and Jerry O’Callaghan.
