Podcast 53; Marcher Lords

A sixteenth century Tipperary manuscript now in the British Library contains elegy’s on five marcher lords of the area, Archbishop John Cantwell, Philip Hackett, James Purcell, Tadgh O’Carroll and Piaras Butler. All noted warriors who spent their lives, including the Archbishop, defending their borders, raiding their neighbours and keeping the Fitzgerald’s and Roche’s at bay.
