The neglected story of the IRB – the organisation
that shaped the foundation of the Irish State.

Cogadh faoi Cheilt – Scéal an IRB

The story of the Irish Republican Brotherhood (IRB) has been hugely overlooked in this period of commemoration. Without the work of the IRB in the previous decades it is arguable whether 1916 would have happened at all, and it is impossible to understand partition without taking into consideration the role of the IRB in the 1918-24 period. Cogadh Faoi Cheilt outlines the possibility of what the IRB hoped to achieve – a secular unified republic with a clear division between religion and state – in contrast to the partitioned country that emerged post 1920.
