So far in the story of the invasion the kingdoms of Munster – Desmond and Thomond have escaped relatively unscathed. That is until this episode. In this show we see a fresh Norman army land in Waterford bent on conquering Munster. They are however stepping into a minefield of bloody feuds that stretch back centuries. In this episode I take a different approach, focusing on experience of the Gaelic Irish rather than the Normans. This takes us into a bitter world of dynastic feuds and bloody struggles for domination in the world of Gaelic Munster. Add a Norman army into the mix and the results are explosive.
