The “Orders of Terror” and a dilemma about how to commemorate key moments of the Civil War

This new month of November brings the centenary of the “Orders of Terribleness,” when the Supreme Commander of Anti-Treaty Forces, Liam Lynch, listed 14 classes of “legitimate targets” who were ordered to shoot on sight.

This included TDs, senators, judges, and journalists, and it was largely in response to the execution of Republican prisoners. We are now approaching halfway through the most difficult year of the centenary year – “difficult” due to the continued division of the civil war that shaped our politics through the 20th century to the formation of the current government in June 2020.
