    My education in Luxembourg and the United States completely ignored Irish history which I find compelling. I recommend this podcast to anyone who wants to learn more about this subject.

  • Great podcast

    I’m new to the podcast. Already 24 episodes in after 4 days listening. It’s set out in bite sized sections, so is easy to follow but also does a real deep dive into the war of independence. Very much enjoying it!
