Guy Beiner on "Remembering the Year of the French: Irish Folk History and Social Memory"

July 5, 2009

Historian Guy Beiner is interested in how folk memory of events differs from the historical record. His most recent book is called "Remembering the Year of the French: Irish Folk History and Social Memory." He talks with Steve Paulson about how the French invasion of Ireland in 1789 is still regarded as of earth-shattering importance in some towns in Western Ireland.
