Excerpt: This is a timeline of the Irish Civil War, which took place between June 1922 and May 1923. It followed the Irish War of Independence (1919-1921), and accompanied the establishment of the Irish Free State as an entity independent from the United Kingdom. The conflict was waged between two opposing groups of Irish nationalists: the forces of the new Irish Free State, who supported the Anglo-Irish Treaty under which the state was established, and the Republican opposition, for whom the Treaty represented a betrayal of the Irish Republic.
The Government of the Irish Free State (established as a Provisional Government in January 1922 and as a full government in December 1922) was ultimately victorious. The anti-Treaty forces called a ceasefire in April 1923 and ordered their men to dump arms in May 1923. The war involved both conventional warfare (late June-August 1922) when the Free State forces took the major towns and cities, and then a longer period of guerrilla warfare (September 1922-April 1923) as the anti-Treaty forces were gradually brought to a standstill.
