The Irish War of Independence
Read the text below and find the five mistakes in it.

The Sinn Féin party lost almost all the seats in the Irish election of 1918 and the next year established an independent Parliament in Dublin. Then the militant nationalist organisation, the Dáil, declared open war on Britain in 1920 under the leadership of Michael Collins. The climax of the conflict was the so-called 'Bloody Monday', when the 'Black and Tan' police auxiliaries killed 120 people at a football match in Dublin. After the establishment of the Irish Controlled State by an Anglo-Irish treaty in 1921, a civil war broke out in 1922 between those in favour of the Anglo-Irish Treaty and those against it. The anti-Treaty faction was defeated in 1923.
