Irish History Podcast

Hi folks in episode 84 I mentioned I am looking for a sponsor for the show. Things have moved along. I now have an agency and the final hurdle is getting you guys to fill out a 30 second survey at www.irishhistorypodcast.ie/survey. It asks six really quick multiple  choice questions. Less than a minute of your time now you will mean hours of podcasts  in the coming months and years.

Thanks

This episode is the first of four that looks at a series of related feuds that ripped Ireland apart in the late Middle Ages. 'Fatal Feuds' begins in the late 13th century when the de Burgh and FitzGerald families fought out a private war of epic proportions. This episode begins by introducing the most important character in the series  - Richard Og de Burgh, The Red Earl of Ulster and Lord of Connacht. Before the podcast ends Ireland is gripped by war, barbarism and uncertainty.
