 Irish Free State - History Forum
The support of the populace was mainly behind the Free State side, and it is that support, as well as the disaster averted if Sinn Fein had won the war, that gave the Free State their victory and the chance for an independent Ireland in the decades to come.
By the end of it, it was undoubtedly true that the Free State had the support of the people, and they took advantage of this support to enjoy a decade in power, before a newly-created moderate republican party, Fianna Fáil, formed their own elected government in 1932.
The victory of the Free State provisional government was crucial to the eventual realization of Irish republican ideals, for if the Republicans had control of it, all the past movements towards greater independence, both by Fianna Fáil and Cumann na nGaedheal, and those in the future would not have happened or affected Ireland at all.

This third reason is why post-war the Irish government down-played the involvement of Irish volunteers from the Free State in WW2.
Fact is that the Irish are a pugnacious, militant and heroic race and during Imperial days a great deal of the British army was Irishmen, not only in Irish regiments but also in English and even in "Highland" ones.
Note that during the Irish Civil War many of the Free State's troops were former British soldiers who lost their jobs when several Irish regiments such as the Connaught Rangers were disbanded in the early 1920s.

 Amazon.com: 1949: A Novel of the Irish Free State (Irish Century): Books: Morgan Llywelyn   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Avoiding such stock Irish themes as the "curse" of drink and emigration to foreign and unwelcoming shores, the story focuses on the indomitable Ursula Halloran (adopted daughter of rebel Ned Halloran, introduced in 1916), a young woman who first works for the Irish radio service and later the League of Nations.
The third work in her Twentieth Century Irish State trilogy, 1949, is a fiction-based glimpse into the evolution of the Irish Republic as seen through the eyes of the indomitable, self assured Ursula Halloran.
To anyone interested in Irish history, and/or just a series of good books, I would recommend reading 1916, 1921 and most definitely 1949, preferably one after the other, because there are so many recurring characters that they may become hard to remember if one of the arlier books was read too long ago.
