Grace O’Malley, her name conjures up images of a wild, sword-wielding pirate terrorizing merchants off the West coast of Ireland. But in reality, she was far from the stereotypical patch-eyed, wooden-legged pirate of folklore. From her point of view, she wasn’t really a pirate at all.

In this episode, I explore the woman behind the myth. The high-ranking, educated, intelligent, leader of Connacht who won an admirer if not an ally in the form of Elizabeth I Queen of England.
