    Hidden Histories: Elvis, Pfizer and Cork

    Hidden Histories: Elvis, Pfizer and Cork

    Calls for a travel ban, hostility to visitors moving between counties, school closures, an All Ireland Final in jeopardy. It’s not 2020 or 2021… it’s the story of the Polio epidemic in Cork in 1956.
    Thankfully the mid-50s polio epidemic ended with a rapidly distributed vaccine - so maybe there’s an omen there - but it wasn’t easy to get everyone to take it. On a global level, it took celebrities like Elvis Presley on the Ed Sullivan Show to get the public behind vaccination. But the story of the Polio vaccine - involving Pfizer none the less - is one of the great success stories of the 1950s.
    Gavan Reilly is joined by Donal Fallon for another episode of Hidden Histories.

    Hidden Histories: An Beal Bocht

    Hidden Histories: An Beal Bocht

    In recent weeks and months we have covered some of the most significant historical anniversaries here in Ireland, mostly centenaries of the acts around the time of Ireland’s Independence.
    But the struggle for independence aside, there is another perhaps unknown anniversay that can be celebrated too.
    An Beal Bocht or 'The Poor Mouth' - a savage parody of the Gaelteacht island autobiography, was published 80 years ago this year borne in the mind of Myles na gCopaleen, aka Flann O’Brien, aka Brian O’Nolan - a Civil Servant writing under a wide variety of pen-names, and sometimes even maintaining a dialogue with himself in the letter pages of The Irish Times.
    In this weeks episode of Hidden Histories, Gavan is joined by Donal Fallon to discuss.
