24 May 1922

Following the murder of an MP, widespread arson and multiple crimes, a decision was made by the authorities in Ulster to arrest over 200 nationalists across the six countries and numerous Sinn Fein groups were proclaimed.

Sir James Craig, the Prime Minister of Northern Ireland, said that he was not willing to engage with the proposed Boundary Commission suggested by the Irish Parliament in Dublin.

The Sinn Fein Convention in Dublin approved the pact agreed between Éamon de Valera and Michael Collins.
