Motherfoclóir with The Irish History Podcast

Motherfoclóir is a weekly podcast presented by Darach Ó Séaghdha, creator the of hit Twitter account @theirishfor and author of Motherfoclóir: Dispatches From A Not-So Dead Language and the forthcoming sequel Craic Baby: Dispatches From A Rising Language. The podcast is “a show about words, Irish, Irish words and words from Ireland” aims to change the way Irish is talked about and thought about, away from “the way it’s taught” and into the ways it touches 21st century life in Ireland – our technology, our legal system, our literature, our activism, our lives.

The Irish History Podcast is brought to you by Fin Dwyer, a 36 year old historian, author and podcaster. Fin studied archaeology and Greek and Roman Civilisation in University College Dublin and completed a masters in archaeology in 2004. Following a short archaeology career he started his podcast and 2010 and hasn’t looked back since. With intriguing facts and conversations, the topic for this live podcast will be "Our Cannibal Ancestors; Stories of Survival from the Great Famine".
