The History of the Foundation of The Irish State

UCD will host a national conference to mark the 100th anniversary of the new Irish state coming into effect on the 6th December 1922. It will explore the process of state formation amid an ongoing civil war and uncertainty over the future of the border with Northern Ireland. Leading academics will also discuss the evolution of the institutions of the state. Joining Dr Patrick Geoghegan to discuss this is: Dr Conor Mulvagh who lectures in the School of History at UCD with special responsibility for the Decade of Centenaries, one of the organisers of the conference; Dr Mary McAuliffe, Director of Gender Studies at UCD and her books include a biography of Margaret Skinnider; and Dr Thomas Mohr who lectures in the UCD Sutherland School of Law, is the author of 'Guardian of the Treaty', and is a Vice-President of the Irish Legal History Society.
