    Default BBC- A Short History of Ireland

    Have been listening to the series for a while. Its fairly interesting.
    Its interesting to get a slightly different viewpoint of 1916 and other major influences in Irish History.

    How's this for the short history.

    We were invaded, we fought, we lost, we starved, we fought, we won.

    the series is back on , starting from the earliest years .
    BBC Radio 7 is now up to the year 1620
    Its very well researched,
    can folks get BBC Radio 7 in the Republic of Ireland?

    You forgot the most recent episode: we elected fools who threw it all away.

    hey, apart from the clowning, its a brilliant effort the series, goes on 3/4 more months 15mins a day
    taken from actual documents for the relevant period, with readings and direct quotes.

    Is the BBCiPlayer available in the ROI?
    Can't get rte player in the UK, wondering if the snub is mutual.
    B**strds!

    You can get the radio iplayer, except for premiership soccer. The TV one does not work.
