KILMAINHAM GAOL MUSEUM

CONFLICT OF BROTHERS

Brothers Divided

Through the eyes of one man, experience the story and discover the truth and heartbreak behind the Irish Civil War at Kilmainham Gaol Museum.

After months of guerrilla war, for the independence of Ireland both the British government and the leaders of the IRA sought to bring the ugly conflict to an end. When Michael Collins signed a treaty accepting with less than complete independence for all of Ireland, he prophesied that he was probably signing his death warrant. He was right.
The signing of the Treaty triggered a short but bitter Civil War, during which more than a thousand Irish people died, including Collins. The Nation was split. How did men who had fought together for a free and independent Ireland come to kill each other?
