Reflecting on a decade of War and Revolution in Ireland 1912-1923:

Ireland 1921 Preparing for Peace…Ready for War?

Conference Year: 2021
Conference Location: Online

On Saturday 6 November 2021 at 10.00am Universities Ireland hosted the tenth annual Decade of Centenaries conference and its online iteration of the series.  This year’s conference explored the themes of Truce, Treaty, Consolidation of Northern Ireland and Partition & Socio-Economic Dimensions.

This years conference was hosed online. This was both a contingency in response to the global pandemic and was also an opportunity to reach new and wider audiences as part of our remit to bring audiences from North, South, and further afield together in the shared pursuit of historical understanding. Over 280 people registered for the event from Ireland, United Kingdom, Europe and America and they were welcomed to the conference by Prof Ian Greer, Universities Ireland President. The day consisted of four panels: Truce, Treaty, Partition and its Implications and Socio-economic Dimensions. We had a wide variety of speakers who provided us with some excellent presentations and some very animated discussions.
