'Winners & Losers' looks at the how the Great Famine came to an end. It's set to the backdrop of a News Year's Eve Ball held in Kilkenny Castle on December 31st 1850. The castle was home to the Marquis & Marchioness of Ormonde, who had invited what was considered the elite of Kilkenny to the ball. However behind the finery and wealth on display we will see how the Great Famine continued to affect life in Ireland into the 1850s. From guests at the ball to the impoverished weavers of Kilkenny, it would be several years before the Great Hunger truly came to an end.Support the podcast www.patreon.com/IrishpodcastTwitter @irishhistoryInsta @irishhistory For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy
