The Irish Women Who Fought the Nazis in World War II (The French Resistance Part II)

Few Irish people recognise the names Sr Katherine Anne McCarthy or Patricia O'Sullivan. However during the Second World War II they were among the dozens of Irish women who fought in the underground war against the Nazi occupation of France. The stories of these women are unbelievable. My guest in this episode, Dr David Murphy, from Maynooth University reveals the risks they took and the harrowing consequences for those who were caught.

If you have family members who served in the Resistance get in touch with David at
