Overview

Irish Lives and Times, the War of Independence, is an anthology of selected articles from Irish newspapers, dated March 20, 1920 to July 12, 1921, that reveals the absolute terror of daily life in Ireland at that time.

The British mastered their ruthless crafts in WWI and spared no mercy to suppress the new Republic of Ireland for the King and the Empire.

This anthology begins with the murder of the Lord Mayor of Cork, Thomas MacCurtain, by armed and disguised men, in the middle of the night, and, the introduction into Ireland of a special force of the Royal Irish Constabulary, that was made up of ex-British soldiers and sailors, who became known as the "Black and Tans."
