Thank you

Lorcan you are a legend. We’re 30 year olds Irish born and bred and we never really knew the proper details of the Irish revolution and could never find a detailed description like what we have listened to on this podcast. After recently learning the in depth life of Daniel O Connell it ignited a need to know more. We found you and we’re now 3 episodes in and really think the younger generations need to hear your stories. Thank you for the knowledge and keeping the men and women of Irish history alive.

Excellent

First came across Lorcan Collins from his bio of James Connolly which I really enjoyed, so had high hopes for this podcast and not disappointed.
