Fatal Feuds Part I; The Rise of the Red Earl (1281 – 1295)
In the late 13th century a series of feuds ripped Medieval Ireland apart. They began 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 Óg de Burgh, The Red Earl of Ulster and Lord of Connacht. Before the podcast ends Ireland is gripped by war, barbarism and uncertainty.
