The 1922 Garda Mutiny

Venue: Church of Ireland – Merriebelle Farm Stage
Contrary to popular perception, the new police force set up by the Irish Free State was fully armed. For six weeks in 1922 the recently recruited guards mutinied. Kells-based historian and author of A History of the Garda Síochána Dr Liam McNiffe will explore the origin, course and very important results of that mutiny.
