Given the upcoming centenary of the Easter Rising in 1916 - the event that changed the course of Irish history forever - it may be of interest to know more about the Irish Republican Brotherhood (IRB), the group that was arguably the most responsible for the Easter Rising being carried out.

Most studies on the IRB focus on the build-up to the Rising or earlier. These three articles attempt to cover the Brotherhood as it survived and evolved and ultimately perished in the years following the Rising, from 1916 to 1924.


An overall of the IRB from the Easter Rising to its last gasp in 1924.

It looks at perceptions of the group from outsiders (which were not always good), how the organisation worked at a grassroots level, and whether it could be held responsible for the Treaty being pushed through the Dáil, as many Anti-Treatyites alleged.


Despite the IRB Supreme Council voting to support the Treaty, many IRB members were adamantly against it.

This article looks at the attempts by the IRA Chief of Staff, Liam Lynch, to reform the IRB on anti-Treaty lines and to 'take back' the organisation.


A Free State reverse on the previous article, with this one looking at attempts to continue the IRB within the victorious Free State Army and even reform it in order to accommodate the new circumstances, attempts which were to fail in humiliating and very public circumstances.
