The Azoo

TRINITY COLLEGE DUBLIN IRISH LIVES IN WAR AND REVOLUTION: EXPLORING IRELAND'S HISTORY 1912-1923 TRINITY COLLEGE DUBLIN Explore the lives of men, women and children living through war and revolution and social changes that made modern Ireland. How do people experience war and revolution? How does political change, violence, total war, affect life in its most basic ways?
