Join me as we explore the making of modern Ireland through key sites in Dublin city centre. I have been doing tours of Dublin since 2015, and hold a Masters in Public History from Trinity College, Dublin, where I am currently undertaking a PhD in Irish History. This tour connects history and the present day, starting with the most infamous event in Ireland's history - the Great Famine - and exploring key events that shape our modern nation.
