The Long and the Short of It with Tim McGarry

Happy birthday Northern Ireland? The Long and the Short of the Creation of Northern Ireland with Dr David Hume and Tim McGarry (David Hume- author, broadcaster, commentator and historian Tim McGarry- Give My Head Peace, The Blame Game, Pop Goes Northern Ireland).

In the popular Radio Ulster programme The Long and the Short of It, historian David Hume, and comedian and keen amateur historian, Tim McGarry, have spent several series learning about and then disagreeing about all aspects of Irish history. 

Now in this special live event Tim and David turn their attention to a very topical and controversial subject - the very creation of Northern Ireland.

In 2021 Northern Ireland as a distinct political entity will be 100 years old and it is fair to say that the commemorations will be a game of two halves!

David may have more facts than Tim but you can expect Tim to bring more jokes than David!

Presented in association with David Hull Promotions.
