Book wars: Diarmaid Ferriter Professor of Modern Irish History at UCD, and writer Tim Pat Coogan, author of '1916: The Mornings After', have clashed over the legacy of Eamon de Valera (main)

The Irish Civil War may have been bloody, but the legacy of its chief protagonist, Eamon de Valera, is still causing carnage and conflict - as witnessed by the latest episode in the tit-for-tat skirmishes between author Tim Pat Coogan and historian Diarmaid Ferriter.

Last weekend it was the turn of Ferriter, Professor of Modern Irish History at University College Dublin and author of Judging Dev, to unleash a biting critique of Coogan's new book, 1916: The Mornings After - From the Courts Martial to the Tribunals.
