Talking St Edmund on Newstalk Radio Ireland

This evening Ireland’s Newstalk Radio interviewed me about my book Edmund: In Search of England’s Lost King. On the station’s ‘Talking History‘ show, presenter Patrick Geoghegan asked me about the life and death of St Edmund, my research into Edmund’s possible resting place in Bury St Edmunds, and St Edmund’s connection with Ireland. This is the subject of my current research, so I was delighted to speak about the influence of the cult of St Edmund in Ireland (however briefly).

This was my second radio appearance of the day, as I was asked to speak about myths and misconceptions associated with the Epiphany this morning on BBC Radio Suffolk (listen here from 2:11:20).
