Spies & Jail Breaks: Female Rebels in Medieval Ireland




Isabella Cadel, Grace O Toole, Fynyna O Toohig. These are all women forgotten by history who lived intriguing and fascinating lives. The three had one thing in common – they were all rebels in medieval Ireland.

In this podcast I look at their forgotten stories which took place in an Ireland ravaged by deadly conflict. These medieval female warriors played an overlooked role in the brutal and deadly war that broke out between Norman settlers and Gaelic Rebels in the late Middle Ages.

“From the creator of the Irish History Podcast comes the story of Modern Ireland and its people written in death”
