Reputations up for debate

Thanks to Ciarán I’ll be trying to find a few free hours over the next couple of days.. but, as he says, this is really interesting stuff. Reputations, an RTE Radio series examining the complexities of the history of Ireland through contrasting attitudes to some of the controversial figures who framed it. RTE have already archived the programmes on Pearse, Parnell, O’Connell, Wolf Tone and Hugh O’Neill, with Diarmuid MacMurrough up for discussion next week. Even better, RTE have made available extended versions of each programme.. in the case of Parnell that’s an extra 20-odd minutes of contributions from historians Roy Foster and Paul Bew.
