In 1090 Muirchertach O Briain, grandson of Brian Boru, faced the darkest moment of his rule as King of Munster. Defeated and vanquished by his rival the king of Ulster, Domnal McLochlainn, he faced two options; either accept his fate or try and claw his way back to power. Within a year he was at war begining an epic struggle. This podcast journeys through the final years of the 11th century as one of the worst plagues of the medieval period struck Ireland. Its not all bloodshed, misery and violence as this show also takes a look at what the medieval church thought of attitudes to sex in Gaelic Ireland.
