Declan and Tara explore the life and leadership of the man who led Ireland as the country split over Home Rule. Edward Carson was born in Dublin, but became leader of the Ulster Unionists and secured a place in the UK for the six counties that would become Northern Ireland. Historians David Hume and Timothy Bowman reflect on his career. Stephen Forde, the Dean of St Anne's Cathedral in Belfast describes the State funeral, and Eileen Paisley, Baroness Bannside, talks about her family's links to Sir Edward while Toby Carson speaks of the love his great-grandfather had for the people of Ulster. neither hosts nor alters podcast files.
