In this episode we begin an exciting journey through one of the most turbulent times in Medieval Ireland. The years 902- 930 see Ireland’s most powerful faction – The O Neill kingdom go to war with their traditional enemies – The Eoganacht. After three years of war only one survives creating a power vacuum, which the Vikings fill, starting yet another war! This show looks at a long forgotten but fascinating period in our history and how it profoundly shaped Ireland and the people who lived through these turbulent times.
