Lecturer in History, Dr Ida Milne, will feature in new TG4 series, Eipidéim, exploring past epidemics in Ireland.
The series will explore the devastating impact caused by diseases such as tuberculosis, polio, and smallpox.
Speaking to the Irish Examiner recently about the seven known cholera epidemics worldwide, Dr Milne says “it affected people everywhere, but it hit the people on the margins worst”. This link between socio-economic background and epidemics was something the series aimed to explore further.

The series will air on TG4 on 4th and 11th May at 21:45.
