Join Lorcan Collins for part two of the story of the United Irishmen Rebellion of 1798. An analysis of the momentous year when the United Irishmen rose up against the oppressive system which kept Catholics and Presbyterians as third class citizens. The fighting was intense in Wicklow, Wexford, Carlow, Kildare, Antrim, Down and Dublin. Collins explains how Wolfe Tone brought the French again to Ireland only to be captured himself and sentenced to death.
