This podcast is the first in my new series on the Great Famine and gives a background to Ireland in the 19th century. Entitled ‘Rebel Island’ it focuses on the life of one extraordinary Irish rebel –  Anne Devlin. She lived a remarkable life and was involved in the 1798 and 1803 rebellions. These reshaped Ireland and had profound consequences impacting life right up to and during the Great Famine.

Anne Devlin’s life also explains why sectarian tensions between Catholics and Protestants dominated life in Ireland, what the Act of Union was and why it was so important.
