The Road to Black 47 – The Great Famine Explained

This week sees the launch of the movie Black ’47 & the return of my Great Famine Podcast Series after a summer break.

If you want to hear the history behind the movie & catch up on my series to date this is podcast for you. (It also includes lots of new information).

The episode tells the fascinating but forgotten story of Margaret Murphy. Margaret’s life is one of neglected stories of people who lived through the Great Hunger.

She was born in Ireland in the final years of the 18th century and was an eyewitness to the rebellions, wars and recession that set the stage for the Great Famine in the late 1840s.

Thanks to the following people for readings.
