Newstalk to focus on Irish-Australian history

Ireland’s national independent talk radio station, Newstalk, will focus on Irish-Australian history in a four part series in its autumn schedule.

The ‘Talking History’ show, broadcast on Newstalk on Sunday evenings (19.00hrs -20.00hrs GMT), will feature a series of episodes with Eoin Hahessy, a Melbourne based writer.

Presented by Dr Patrick Geoghegan of Trinity College Dublin, ‘Talking History’ focuses on the human side of history – unraveling the gritty, dirty and sometimes uncomfortable side we don’t usually hear much about.

The series on Irish-Australian history commenced on Sunday the 28th September.  You can listen to the first episode by clicking here.

The next episode will be broadcast in October. For further information go to  Flight of the Cubs to get the details of this broadcast.
