Paddy Cullivan – 10 Dark Secrets of 1798
Why is the death of Wolfe Tone still a mystery and why did the British need to make it look like suicide? Who was the establishment figure that may have been his real father? In the time of the Penal laws, which national icon was a ‘Loyal Catholic’? How did Napper Tandy help Napoleon’s love life? And which of his ‘lucky’ generals may have scuppered everything from Bantry Bay to Waterloo? And why is remembering 1798 more ‘inconvenient’ with every passing year? All these questions and more will be dealt with as Paddy Cullivan of Callan’s Kicks, The Late Late Show and Kilkenomics brings you an audio-visual spectacular 220 years after the rebellion that changed Ireland forever. One not to be missed!
