Podcast #6: Constance Markievicz

Our latest podcast, produced and presented in February 2018 by Susan Stone.

This time it’s your beloved co-host Katy Derbyshire again, telling you a lot of things you need to know about the Irish revolutionary Constance Markievicz and how she went from debutante to celebrated freedom fighter.

Also available on Soundcloud, Apple Podcasts, RadioPublic, and other podcast purveyors.

Show notes:

Here’s Constance as Katy first came across her, in Dublin’s St Stephen’s Green.


And here she is all dressed up for the Easter Rising. Note the hat.


More militant millinery.


Watch silent footage of Con from British Pathé here and here.

For further reading, we recommend Anne Haverty’s excellent Constance Markievicz – Irish Revolutionary.

Many thanks to Deirdre McMahon for all her help.

Our theme music is “Little Lily Swing” by Tri-Tachyon. Thanks for listening – come back in March for a new podcast!
