Vindicating Dublin: The story behind the controversial dissolution of Dublin Corporation in 1924

Dublin Corporation was dissolved by the Free State Government on 20 May 1924, following an inquiry in the Mansion House. According to one prominent historian, the decision to dissolve Dublin Corporation was not clear-cut and seemed ‘to give some credence to the belief that the Cosgrave government was determined to reduce the autonomy of local authorities.’
