County Galway and the Irish Free State 1922–32

This book focuses on the historical debate beyond the Irish revolution and introduces a new study of post-revolutionary experience in Ireland at a county level. It begins to build an image of regional political and social life in the immediate post-revolutionary period. The book discusses the turbulent years of 1922 and 1923, the local electorate's endorsement of the Anglo-Irish Treaty and the beginning of domestic Irish politics in what was a vastly altered post-treaty world. The Anglo-Irish Treaty was signed in London and confirmed dominion status on a twenty-six-county Irish Free State. The book further examines four major themes in rural agrarian society: land, poverty, Irish language, and law and order. It establishes the level of deprivation in local society that the Cumann na nGaedheal government had to confront. Finally, the book attempts to relate the political record of the county to the existing socio-economic realities of local life. Particular emphasis is placed on the election campaigns, the issues involved, and the voting patterns and trends that emerged in Galway. In east Galway agrarian agitation shaped the nature of civil war violence. The civil war fanned a recrudescence in acute agrarian agitation in the west. In the aftermath of the civil war, the August 1923 general election was fought on the Free State government's terms.

It extends the historical debate beyond the Irish revolution and introduces a new study of post-revolutionary

national and local politics.37 Both Gibson and Higgs pointed to some of the problems of working from public records for nobles. Both these historians recognised that there were major aspects of nobles’ post-revolutionary experiences on which speculation was possible but which really needed further historical investigation. Patterns of residency, cultures of estate management, and levels of involvement in agriculture were among those aspects that remained ‘hidden’ from the researcher using public archives.38 Equally obscure to historians consulting such records was

trajectory and success of the Romanian Revolution as well as the democratic nature of the political establishment that was to follow. The following chapter explores the transition from the communist illusion to the capitalist illusion through the eyes of the 1989 Romanian revolutionaries and follows the process of illusion/disillusionment in light of their dreams, actions, motivations and their post-revolutionary experiences and reflections. Using the theoretical framework presented in Chapters 2 and 3, this new chapter seeks to understand, on the one hand, how the
