|Through the lives of eight people, Finbar tells|
the story of a chaotic and gruesome period
of Irish history
1348: A Medieval Apocalypse – the Black Death in Ireland is Fin's second book. It focuses on the lives of eight people who experienced the chaos of the time. Among them are James Butler, 2nd Earl of Ormond; Gyle de Burgh, the wife of sir Richard Mandeville; Johanna Stackpoll (a previously unknown Dublin widow unearthed through Fin's research); and Friar John Clyn, a priest and chronicler from Kilkenny.
A five-minute sample of the latter's tale is told in a preview podcast – The Great Mortality – here.
The book is available in audio, hardback and eBook and costs €9.99, €7.49 and €19.99 respectively. It is available only at IrishHistoryPodcast.ie.
