In the Spring of 1925 newspapers around the world carried stories that a famine had broken out in Ireland. The Manchester Guardian reported 750,000 people were at risk, a figure repeated by the Soviet Union’s daily Pravda. However you won’t find mention of this “famine” in Irish history books so in I went to the National Archives in search of evidence.
What I found was tragic details of yet another cover up. Listen to the show to find out what I discovered.
