I am looking for people in Ireland and among the Irish Diaspora with family connections to the Irish Civil War (1922-23) to be interviewed for an oral history on how individuals, families, communities, and later generations remember this important conflict (and the Irish revolutionary period more generally). If you had family (perhaps a parent, uncle, grandparent, etc.) involved in the conflict on either side, I would be very interested in meeting you. What was the impact of the civil war on your family? How is it remembered? Have any stories been passed down? I am interested in civil war memories relating to all parts of Ireland. Beyond Ireland, I am eager to interview Irish-Americans, Irish-Canadians, and others related to IRA veterans who emigrated in the aftermath of the conflict.
Interviews will be recorded to audio or video or written down, according to your wishes. You will be given a copy of the recording. The project has been approved by Concordia University’s Human Research Ethics Committee, and all interviewees will be informed in advance about conditions and options of participation.
