About This Show
Show Info: The Irish History Podcast brings you on a journey through Ireland's fascinating past. The show is currently focused on the Great Irish Famine of the 1840s, while the archive contains the story of High Kings, Vikings and Norman Invaders in the Middle Ages. Between 1845 and 1851 one million Irish people died and one million emigrated. This not only changed Ireland but the world as Famine emigrants established communities in the USA, Britain, Canada & Australia to mention but a few. Hear what your ancestors endured and why they fled their homes in Ireland in this multi-part series. This podcast is not just dates but an enthralling journey deep into Ireland's past looking at daily life through the ages. It will bring you on a journey through a world where violence was common and life was short. In the Great Famine series I focus on the stories of our ancestors who lived through what were world changing events.
