The Handover of Dublin Castle: A Centenary Conference

On 16 January 1922 the Provisional Government took possession of Dublin Castle. This conference explores the significance of this moment.

The conference, which is part of the Decade of Centenaries Programme, will explore the immediate reactions, the expected consequences, and the implications of this dramatic shift in the centre of power. Speakers will consider the context of the handover, and the response in Ireland, Britain and beyond, to this moment when, as the Irish Times reported, ‘the old regime ceased to exist’.

The conference will be held in the Printworks in Dublin Castle and will also be live-streamed for online attendees.
