Fact Box: The Irish Civil War

In 1921, Ireland was granted freedom from Britain. This freedom did not apply to the northern region, called Ulster, which was still to be part of the United Kingdom. Many Irish did not accept this treaty and the country was thrown into a civil war between those who accepted the deal with Britain (Irish Free Staters) and those who did not (Republicans).
Up to 5,000 people are killed before the fighting ends in 1923 with victory for the Dublin Free State government.
