Most tours you take will focus on past historical events which give you an idea where a country comes from but not where they are today. In Ireland this historical end point is 1923 after the Irish Civil War and the creation of an independent state. History is not a static event it is constantly evolving and encompasses social as well as military change. No more so is this social change evident than in Ireland.
