How the IRA killed Irish history

FindmyPast Ireland (@findmypastie) has just flagged up a great article on The Irish Story blog, describing the senseless IRA attack on the Customs House building in Dublin in 1921. It's a truly tragic story, and can be read at www.theirishstory.com/2012/05/23/today-in-irish-history-the-burning-of-the-customs-house-may-25-1921/#.T8iGorC4TgV
