This chapter covers the period from the foundation of the Irish Free State in 1922 to the defeat of the Cumann na nGaedheal Government a decade later. It demonstrates how a fundamental shift in Northern Ireland policy coincided with Michael Collins’s assassination and that this impacted on a variety of crucial issues such as republican unity, North–South contacts and attitudes to the Stormont regime. The chapter then scrutinises the conduct of the Boundary Commission and analyses how the Irish Government tried to salvage something from the unfavourable 1925 report, which reinforced partition.
