The Irish Passport

Described as "brilliant" by the Guardian and "peerless" by Slugger O'Toole, The Irish Passport has smashed into international podcast charts with its fun blend of Irish current affairs with the history and culture needed to understand them. Presented by journalist Naomi O'Leary and lecturer Tim Mc Inerney, it's your passport to Ireland.


S3 Episode 5: Galway, City of the Tribes

Fishermen kings, Spanish galleons, and fearsome pirate marauders – these are just some of the things that make the history of Galway City on the west coast of Ireland so intriguing. Take a tour around the medieval old town with historian Adrian Martyn, and find out all about the infamous ‘Tribes of Galway’ who presided over this western frontier-city for over five centuries. Who were they? Where on earth did they come from? And what’s left of them today?
