The Irish Civil War was a conflict that divided the nation and pitted friends and even family against each other in battle.
In this RTÉ documentary, Bryan Dobson investigates causes and repercussions of the Civil War in Ireland. The documentary is named The Madness from Within, which is a phrase used by Richard Mulcahy to describe the conflict.
Part Four examines the executions of the IRA soldiers by the Free State government and questions whether or not they were necessary. The question is raised of how things would have been different had Michael Collins still been alive?
There are insightful interviews with members of both the pro-treaty and anti-treaty that allow greater understanding of the War.
