Over the last few months, I have been preparing a new series on the Great Famine. Supported by listeners who have become patrons at patreon.com/irishpodcast, this series will explore the history of what is arguably the most significant event in our history.
In this short introduction I outline what the series is about, what I hope to achieve and what seems to an increasing controversy – why I chose the name – The Great Famine!

While the first episode will be released next week, listeners who become patron’s get early access. If you sign up today you can get an exclusive preview of the first episode ‘Rebel Island’ as well as lots of bonus other content.
