Irish Civil War video

This is a great find by FindmyPast Ireland, which they placed on their Facebook page yesterday (www.facebook.com/findmypast.ie) - five minutes of original newsreel footage depicting the story of the Irish Civil War. I've not seen most of the footage before, and have recently been reading up on the war, as my wife's lot were up to their necks in it in Tipperary and Kilkenny!

A really tragic episode of history, and well worth a watch:
