A Broken People: The Survivors of the Great Hunger

The Great Hunger left deep scars on the Irish society. Many of those who survived the 1840s never fully survived the harrowing ordeal they had endured. They were traumatised in body and spirit. For the rest of their lives, they carried the physical and psychological injuries the Great Hunger inflicted on them.

This podcast follows the life one of the last survivors in Dublin - Catherine Mulhern.

This podcast was included in an early draft of my upcoming book A Lethal Legacy – A History of Ireland in 18 Murders. While it didn’t make the final edit for reasons explained in the show, it is a fascinating story.

A Lethal Legacy - A History of Ireland in 18 Murders is currently available for pre-order today. If you buy your copy at & use the coupon code FD10 you will get 10% off.
