KILDARE IN THE REVOLUTIONARY DECADE
History Ireland Podcast
A new History Ireland Magazine Hedge School Podcast, supported by Kildare Decade of Commemorations, was released recently. It features History Ireland magazine editor, Tommy Graham, in discussion with historians James Durney, John Gibney, Ida Milne and Fionnuala Walsh on ‘Kildare in the Revolutionary Decade‘.
While not in the vanguard of armed activity during the War of Independence, Kildare was central to the ‘revolutionary decade’ as whole, not only for its strategic importance and proximity to Dublin, but in particular as the site of the largest British military establishment in Ireland at the Curragh and elsewhere. It also has the dubious distinction of being the county worst affected by the flu pandemic of 1918-19.
