A Short History of Ireland


In 1939 a divided Ireland held her breath on the brink of the Second World War. Almost a quarter of a century later she swayed on the edge of a fresh conflict - Terence O’Neill was the new Prime Minister of Northern Ireland and the Troubles were just around the corner. What happened in the years between these two great turning points? In 60 episodes, 'A Short History of Ireland' brings the events, the leading characters and the ordinary people to life. The series is written by Dr. Jonathan Bardon and is a continuation of his 240 part 'A Short History of Ireland' for BBC Radio Ulster. The narrators are Cherrie McIlwaine, Patrick FitzSymons, Sean Crummey and Dr. Jonathan Bardon. This podcast has now finished.
