The Irish Boundary Commission- A Talk by Jim O Hagan
Roundwood & District Historical and Folklore Society announce an upcoming event;
An interesting talk will delivered by Jim O’Hagan on, The Irish Boundary Commission Mon 28th January 8.30 pm @ Old School House “The Irish Boundary Commission (Coimisiún na Teorainne) was a commission which met in 1924–25 to decide on the precise delineation of the border between the Irish Free State and Northern Ireland. The 1921 Anglo Irish Treaty, which ended the Anglo Irish War, provided for such a commission if Northern Ireland chose to secede from the Irish Free State, an event that occurred as expected two days after the Free State’s inception on 6 December 1922.”
Hope to see you there!
