Absolutely fantastic. Unbiased Ulster history with a lot of humor and real NornIron dialect. If you are American, I recommend listening slowly, but it's worth it.

Honestly I don't understand some of the things he says, as I'm from the US and his accent is a bit thick for my ears. But his delivery is fantastic and he does a great job of weaving together historical narratives, modern references and witty quips.
