Police Casualties in Ireland, 1919-1922
The year 1919 saw the beginning of a serious challenge to the Royal Irish Constabulary, a force whose members had peaceably served the community for many years. Within the space of three years, policing had changed out of all recognition throughout Ireland. This book tells the story of these turbulent years, and charts the history of both the RIC and the nationalist groups that rose to oppose them, leading to the establishment of the Irish Free State and the eventual disbandment of the force in 1922. The book records in detail accounts of the killing of serving and former members of the RIC, supplying available background details of many of these fatal attacks.
