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.
