About this event

Although Edward Carson's 'guiding light' was for the entire island of Ireland to remain united within the United Kingdom, Dublin City Council historian-in-residence and Birth of the Border: The Impact of the Partition of Ireland author Cormac Moore argues that nobody did more than Edward Carson to bring about the partition of Ireland.

Realising from 1913 that all of Ireland could not be 'saved' from Home Rule, Carson pursued a policy of the permanent exclusion of the six north-eastern counties of Ulster which ultimately led to the partition of Ireland in 1921.
