The explosion of munitions and resulting fire at the Irish Public Records Office at Dublin’s Four Courts marked a tragic end to the first act the Irish civil war. One eyewitness to the explosion , the author Ernie O’Malley, described legal documents that dated as far back as the thirteenth century "gyrating in the upper air like seagulls". Partly burnt documents were blown all over the city of Dublin.||Type of material:||Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine||Publisher:||The Dublin Solicitors Bar Association||Keywords:||Irish Legal History Society||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed|
