Podcast 134: Biddy Early the Clare Legend with Balor Otherworld

Biddy Early was an absolute legend in her own right. She shows us what resilience is, in the face of an oppressor. Her ability to heal people drew people to her.

Of particular interest to us is whether she spoke the Irish language. Her Wikipedia entry states:

With her family and friends she spoke Irish, but she had some knowledge of English.[citation needed]
