Speaking ill of the dead: Countess Markievicz

Speaking ill of the dead is a series of lectures recorded in March by RTÉ Radio 1 at the National Museum. The conference was co-sponsored by RTÉ and the National Museum. Historians were asked to choose a figure from Irish history (though not necessarily Irish born) for whom they had an aversion and speak about them before an audience.

Programme 10: 6th November 2006:

Ruth Dudley Edwards on the less than admirable qualities of Countess Markievicz.
