Irish History Podcast
This episode marks a return to the Great Famine Series. Coming podcasts will detail the later phase of the Famine including emigration and the bitter struggle that broke out between lanldords & tenants.
This show sets the stage by focusing on the life of the most famous Irish person of the 19th century - Daniel O’Connell.  Known as 'King Dan' the final years of his life provide a great opportunity to recap on what has happened so far and tie up loose ends before we continue our story.

Isabella Cadel, Grace O Toole, Fynyna O Toohig. These are all women forgotten by history who lived intriguing and fascinating lives. The three had one thing in common - they were all rebels in medieval Ireland.

The next installment of the Great Famine Series is currently in production and will be available in two weeks. It will be released early on
