On The History Fix today, the Curious Case of the Carrickshock massacre of 1831. Sophie Dunne and her mother Helen Kealy-Dunne talk about efforts to restore an ancient two-roomed thatched cottage in Clogh. The Reburial of Jackie Brett in Kilkenny during the War of Independence has been beautifully illustrated in a short film – we hear from director Kevin Hughes. Finally we learn about the history of Borris Lace from some of the women who’ve revived the tradition in recent years.
