Summary
In 1922, the people of Ireland turned against each other in one of the bloodiest civil wars in history. In its wake, internecine feuding incited decades of terrorist atrocities. This program features interviews with participants in the Civil War, some in their 90s, whose passionate defense of the side they took remains as strong and vivid as ever. Contributions from surviving relatives of participants in the war, including three sons and daughters of members of the 1922 Provisional Government headed by Eamon de Valera and Michael Collins, provide insights into the infighting that led to Collins' assassination. The political roles of the parties Sinn Fein and Fianna Fail are examined, as well as the military role of the Irish Republican Army. Interviews are interwoven throughout with archival footage and photographs from the period.
