Irish in the American Civil War Podcast

I had the pleasure recently of participating in a discussion on Irish involvement in the American Civil War as part of the 1848 Tricolour Celebrations in Waterford. It took place in the Granville Hotel, on the site of Thomas Francis Meagher’s birthplace, and was organised as part of History Ireland magazine’s ‘Hedge School’ series. The other members of the panel were my former colleague Lar Joye of the National Museum of Ireland, Professor Tom Bartlett of the University of Aberdeen and local historian Jack Burtchaell. The discussion was chaired by Tommy Graham, editor of History Ireland and organiser of the Hedge Schools. The panel contribution has now been made available as a podcast, which is free and available to listen to by clicking this link: History Ireland ‘Irish in the American Civil War’ Hedge School.

    How can I contact Jack Burtchaell? He led a walking tour in Waterford when I was there in July.
