Ireland Becomes a Free State
After Sinn Fein's victory in the Parliamentary elections of Southern Ireland, negotiations began with the British on Irish independence. An agreement was reached that provided for an independent Ireland having the status of Dominion within the British Empire. The radicals disapproved and mounted an insurrection against the provisional government. In subsequent elections, the government won an overwhelming victory. The new constitution of Ireland was ratified and the Irish Free State came into being.
