Each week in this new summer series, some of Ireland’s finest historians examine key historical events that shaped Ireland as we know it today and discuss what the impact on our history and our country might be had they not happened.  This week, historians Dr Éamonn Ó Ciardha and Dr Padraig Lenihan, and Irish scholar Dr Art Hughes, discuss the War of the Two Kings, how it introduced partition to this country, and what might have been if things had been otherwise.  Produced by Scun Scan Productions, with support from the BAI Sound and Vision scheme.  Dónall Ó Maolfabhail presents and produces the series.
