Hidden Histories: The Arms Crisis

2020 will mark the fiftieth anniversary of the Arms Crisis, a political scandal that rocked Fianna Fáil to its very core. High profile names like Haughey and Blaney, so central to 20th century Irish politics, were in the firing line, as accusations were made that Government Ministers - with the help of an Irish Army Officer - were attempting to arm the fledgling republican movement in the North. Reputations were both made, and destroyed, in the affair. Donal Fallon joins Gavan Reilly to reflect on the story behind it.

Hidden Histories: Parnellism

There were some chuckles earlier this week when Jacob Rees-Mogg evoked the name of Charles Stewart Parnell in the House of Commons, but Parnell himself would have been delighted to see his name trend on Twitter - he was, afterall, a master at bringing attention to his political cause. The Uncrowned King of Ireland brought the Westminster parliament to a standstill, but some of the leading British politicians of the day later admitted their deep respect for the father of filibustering. Gavan Reilly is joined byDonal Fallon of the Come Here To Me! blog for another episode of Hidden Histories.

Hidden Histories: Poitín

Ireland has witnessed a craft beer and distilling renaissance in recent years. Teeling Whiskey, Gunpowder Gin and more besides have emerged and made their mark on the whiskey world and more surprising is the re-emergence of Poitín. No longer a bootlegged commodity, the once mysterious drink is now appearing in cocktail bars in London and New York. So, how did it all go mainstream? Gavan Reilly is joined byDonal Fallon of the Come Here To Me! blog for another episode of Hidden Histories.

Hidden Histories: Marcus Garvey

You may not have heard of the name Marcus Garvey or his politicsbut he was effectively the father of Black Nationalism and known by some as ‘the Black Moses’, a man who inspired the likes of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr - who referred to him as the first man “to give millions of Negroes a sense of dignity and destiny.” And while his name might be unknown to many Irish people, Irish politics was well known to him - because he named his HQ Liberty Hall, in honour of the Dublin version, and he even took sides in the Anglo-Irish Treaty! Donal Fallon joins Gavan Reilly in studio for another installment of Hidden Histories.

Hidden Histories: Harland and Wolff

Harland and Wolff is in the news for all the wrong reasons, as the iconic ship building institution seems set to close its doors. Once employing thousands of men, the company now has a mere 130 men on its books, and seems set to close. Remembered for the Titanic, there is much more to the story of one of Ireland’s most iconic and controversial industrial giants, whose giant cranes are a much-loved feature of Belfast’s skyline. So it’s time for another edition of Hidden Histories; for which we’re joined by Donal Fallon.

Hidden Histories: Space and Us

Fifty years ago this week, Ireland - like the rest of the world - was transfixed by man landing on the moon. Moon fragments would be displayed at the American Embassy in the early 1970s, drawing thousands of curious onlookers, and Dublin streets were even renamed in honour of the men who set foot on the moon. Donal Fallon talks us through Ireland's reaction to the moon landing all those years ago.
