Irish History Podcast

Most of the podcasts I make focus on the darker aspects of medieval life. War is a common theme and famine is never far away.

The show start in the Vale of Dublin in 1326 when the region was an apocalyptic wasteland before looking back to 1234 when the region enjoyed better days.
