Passage East - A Medieval D-Day on Ireland's Omaha Beach

Do beaches have a history? They very rarely feature in history books, however some of the most important chapters in our past began on beaches.

This episode was recorded at Passage East in Co Waterford. This beach is arguably one of the most important historic landscapes on the island. The Norman Invasion began here as both Strongbow and Henry II made landfall at Passage East.

In this episode I look at the history of beaches, why they are often overlooked by historians and the fascainting story of how the Norman Invasion began at Passage East .
