The Black Death in Ireland




The Black Death changed Europe and Ireland forever. This disease which swept across the continent through 1348 carried off around 40% of the population. Its aftermath was no less sensational as social upheavel, wars and revolts broke out across Europe. Ireland was no different, indeed it was arguably affected in more profound ways than most of the continent.


Over last few months I have produced a new hour three hour audio feature on the Black Death in Ireland based on my 2016 book 1348: A Medieval Apocalypse.

This podcast previews the audiobook explaining the fascinating history behind these events.

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