Over the period 1912 to 1923 Ireland underwent a constitutional revolution. The aim of this paper is to detail the economic context of this revolution and to outline some longer-term effects that the revolutionary period had on Irish economic development. The focus is predominantly on the Irish Free State, although comparison and reference is made to the ‘home rule’ polity of Northern Ireland. This paper was prepared as a chapter for the forthcoming Atlas of the Irish Revolution.
