A history of the Rebel County

Patrick's Street, Cork

What's the true history of the Rebel County? Was this county always a haven for rebels and Fenians? Did it act as the 'cockpit' for the revolutionaries during the War of Independence? And is Michael Collins it's most famous son?

Join Patrick as he debates the history of Cork with a panel of experts in front of a live audience from the fantastic Kingsley Hotel on the banks of the River Lee.

We had a fantastic panel including: Joe O Shea, Dr John Borgonovo, Meda Ryan, Conal Creedon, Dr Donal O Drisceoil, Dr Heather Laird, and Dr Gabriel Doherty.


Live music on the night was performed by the Cork School of Music.
