Anglo-Irish Treaty, 1921

Our Anglo-Irish Treaty, 1921 website was first launched in 2011 to mark the 90th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty.

It draws upon the rich documentary holdings of original Irish Government records held in the National Archives. The core of this exhibition is the original document itself released online in its entirety. The exhibition uses original source material to describe Ireland in the wake of the War of Independence, how this shaped the treaty negotiations, the emergence of an agreement and the fallout and Civil War that followed.
