Welcome to the Ernie O'Malley website.  

As this site grows, we hope to share with you information on Ernie O'Malley and the people and the events of the War of Independence and the Civil War.  We hope that this can be a site where people share information and learn about this rich period in Irish history.

Ernie O'Malley was an Irish Republican Army (IRA) officer during the Irish War of Independence (1919-21) and a commander of the anti-treaty IRA during the Irish Civil War (1922-23). The literary quality of his books and his career after the political conflicts distinguish him from other IRA men who also penned memoirs of the times.
