Week 13 - The Winning of Irish Independence: 1917-1923
The penultimate week of the series explores what happened after 1916, as the war of independence broke out in 1919 and eventually forced the negotiation of the Anglo-Irish Treaty and the creation of the Irish Free State. The partition of Ireland, and the Civil War of 1922-1923 provided a bloody epilogue to the events of the course.

This new history lecture series 'Ireland in Rebellion' by Professor Patrick Geoghegan is a free 14 week course (PDF) about the making of modern Ireland looking at the period 1782 to 1916 and beyond. Beginning with the winning of legislative independence, and exploring the competing forces of constitutional nationalism and radicalism, it looks at the forces which led to the creation of the independent Irish state.
Trinity students and alumni share their Trinity experience stories, which helped shape their lives
Using production techniques like drone and time-lapse filming, we were able to present the campus, both old and new, in ways that have never before been done. While we can never hope to capture the scale of what happens in Trinity every day, we believe this film tries to capture some elements of what makes Trinity unique.
