This chapter examines the evolution of the Irish Republican Army (IRA) during the period from 1925 to 1929. Major changes in the IRA came after the General Army Convention held in Dalkey, County Dublin in November 1925. After the convention, the IRA's primary aim was changed to 32-county independence and it was decided that its primary method would be violence. The military emphasis of the IRA constitution reflected the movement's approach to politics and its primary role as a self-appointed army of national liberation.
