On the Lash! A History of Drinking in Ireland
First built in 1582, the Hole in the Wall pub in Kilkenny was the perfect location to record this episode. I was joined by DJ Walsh of the podcast Snugcast and we looked at the history of drinking in Ireland.
Starting in the late Middle Ages, this podcast is a whistlestop tour through Irish drinking habits over 800 years. Myself and DJ talk about what Irish people drink and how this has changed. We also picked apart the reasons for Ireland's deeply problematic atttitude to alcohol.
The podcast finishes with a discussion on drinking habits in Ireland in the 21st Century.
Thanks to DJ Walsh of Snugcast!
