Episode 15: The First PM

April 10, 2021

Edward Carson may have been the man many associate with the birth of Northern Ireland but behind him all the way was the “granite-faced” figure of Sir James Craig.

Tara and Declan explore how he came to be in that position and how he modelled Northern Ireland in his own image. neither hosts nor alters podcast files. All content © its respective owners.
