Fleeing the war: Basques refugees in Ireland

This show look at a story related to the series Partisans. Its about the life of a Basque family briefly mentioned in that series - the Gallastegis - who moved to Ireland in the aftermath of the bombing of Guernica during the Spanish Civil War. 

This show was produced and researched by Ignacio Irigoien and Steward Reddin. I was delighted to be asked to narrate it and I am very grateful to be given permission to share it you now. It includes interviews with the historians Kyle Mccreanor and Brian Hanley along with several members of the Gallastegi family.
