Fake News? – How The Irish Famine was Depicted Overseas (#115)
Welcome to Season 1, Episode 15 of The Letter from Ireland Show. In this episode we go back to the Irish Famine of the mid-1800s and look at ways at which news of the Irish Famine spread throughout the world - leading to reactions from the most surprising of quarters.
We are delighted to bring you Episode 15 of The Letter from Ireland Show – a weekly podcast that goes out each Thursday from our cottage in County Cork. Tune in to this episode – and dive straight in to a bit of Irish caint, ceóil agus craic (conversation, music and craic!).
In this episode, Carina reads two of our letters from Ireland. First talks about “One View of Beauty and Tragedy” – in which she paints a picture of the Irish Famine. She then invites you to take “A Walk Along the Trail of Tears“.
