Episode 7-Anglo-Irish War Part II 1920

Before we begin, we want to make it clear that this podcast and website knows Black Lives Matter and support the protesters demanding justice and arguing for the abolition of the police. There are links below on how we can help support the movement and challenge our own prejudices and educate ourselves.

This is the second episode in our three part special about the Anglo-Irish War. In this episode we briefly discuss the deaths of Tomas Mac Curtain, Terence MacSwiney, and Kevin Barry as well as Bloody Sunday and the Kilmichael Ambush
