The IRA and Englandby Heather Lehr Wagner
Since the formation of Northern Ireland at the beginning of the 20th century, its six counties have been marked by conflict and violence. Divisions have split its people sharply, and each new generation has grown up watching friends and family members die for their beliefs. Much of the conflict has centered on the activities of the Irish Republican Army (IRA), a group of volunteers who first banded together to fight the British in 1919. From bombing campaigns to political campaigns, the conflict has left its scars on the streets of London as well as the streets of Belfast, and sharply defined the legacy of the British Empire in the 20th and 21st centuries. The IRA and England discusses the root causes of this conflict, for which there has been no easy solution.
