Loved all of that. So <Speech_Male> Clare Library <Speech_Male> Dot e <Speech_Male> was awesome. <Speech_Male> This is our plug. <Speech_Male> Correct. <Speech_Male> Check <Speech_Male> out well, and <Speech_Male> I'm going turn leave a little <Speech_Male> different way and say. <Speech_Male> Check out what kinds <Speech_Male> of local folklore <Speech_Male> is collected at <Speech_Male> your local library. <Speech_Male> I <Speech_Female> loved I loved <Speech_Female> doing a full floor <Speech_Female> or histories. <Speech_Female> They're <SpeakerChange> all <Speech_Male> yes. <Speech_Male> Yup. So <Speech_Male> With, <Speech_Male> with Mary McMahon <Speech_Male> who you know in <Speech_Male> in, Legend became <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> red. Mary. <Silence> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> She's you <Speech_Male> know we're still kind of talking <Speech_Male> about that colonial <Speech_Male> space <Speech_Male> of political <Speech_Male> contest. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> And political violence <Speech_Male> and conquest <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> where her life <Speech_Male> is lived <Speech_Male> out in this castle <Silence> where. <Speech_Male> It's <Speech_Male> a fortress it's <Speech_Male> an is the it's <Speech_Male> the home of her husband's <Speech_Male> noble <Speech_Male> family, but they're <Speech_Male> Irish nobles. <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Male> some of those remarkable <Speech_Male> stories about how <Speech_Male> tough she was <Speech_Male> that you know <Speech_Male> the historians have found <Speech_Male> in the documentary <Speech_Male> record <Speech_Male> about <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> How she and <Speech_Male> her husband were <Speech_Male> going out and rating. <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Male> taking <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> <hes> livestock <Speech_Male> and household <Speech_Male> valuables and <Silence> things from. <Speech_Male> <hes> <Speech_Male> from. <Speech_Male> English <Speech_Male> noble houses. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> <hes> <Speech_Male> she then <Speech_Male> by the end of her story <Speech_Male> as Aaron tells <Speech_Male> it I mean this is all in <Speech_Male> the war episode. <Speech_Male> <hes> she <Speech_Male> ends up marrying into <Speech_Male> the conquering English <Speech_Male> army. <Speech_Male> <hes> and <Speech_Male> in some ways that's like. <Speech_Male> You <Speech_Male> know I it she's <Speech_Male> a traitor. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Fighting on one side, <Speech_Male> and then she betrays <Speech_Male> that side. <Speech_Male> And ends <Speech_Male> up on the conquering <Speech_Male> English side. <Speech_Male> And <Silence> <Speech_Male> You know <Speech_Male> there's there's obviously <Speech_Male> criticism <Speech_Male> to be had in there about <Speech_Male> being faithless. <Speech_Male> But <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> I really thought that <Speech_Male> her decisions were smart <Speech_Male> and as I was thinking <Speech_Male> about <Speech_Male> the choices that she made. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> In the episode, Errand <Silence> says that she <Speech_Male> Part <Speech_Male> of the reason she made that choice <Speech_Male> was that she had children <Speech_Male> to take care of <Speech_Male> Cherr-, <Speech_Male> and that's that's <Speech_Male> true <Speech_Male> <hes> <Speech_Male> but in my <Speech_Male> reading. <Speech_Male> Some of her children <Silence> were adults. <Speech_Male> Like. She's <Speech_Male> an old enough woman <Speech_Male> at this point in her life <Speech_Male> that one of the things <Speech_Male> she was doing <Speech_Male> was. <Speech_Male> Earning <Speech_Male> pardons <Speech_Male> for her sons <Speech_Male> had <Speech_Male> fought alongside <Speech_Male> her the <Speech_Male> English. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> So it's <Speech_Male> It's not quite <Speech_Male> the kind of maternal. She <Speech_Male> had children to take care <Speech_Male> of who were infants <Speech_Male> or toddlers are <Speech_Male> eight or nine, but <Speech_Male> she's almost making <Speech_Male> a political choice <Speech_Male> that wins clemency <Speech_Male> for <Speech_Male> her clan. <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> And saves like <Speech_Male> saves herself <Speech_Male> but also <Silence> saves. <Speech_Male> Her <Speech_Male> family line <Speech_Male> who are already. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Under. Threat of <Speech_Male> being put to <Speech_Male> the sword because of the fighting <Speech_Male> that they've done. <Speech_Male> So just <Speech_Male> the kind of political <Speech_Male> cunning, that's <Silence> there I mean <Speech_Male> everyone's <Speech_Male> free to take it in whatever <Speech_Male> way they want criticize <Speech_Male> it, celebrate it <Silence> but. <Speech_Male> You know, I. <Speech_Male> Kinda. Saw It in that <Speech_Male> light <SpeakerChange> of <Speech_Male> this this warfare <Speech_Female> absolutely <Speech_Female> and I <Speech_Female> mean just. <Speech_Female> Talk about <Speech_Female> <hes> being <Speech_Female> <hes> <Speech_Female> faithless <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> I think how you phrased <Speech_Female> it and <Speech_Female> I feel like at <Speech_Female> the end of the day though <Speech_Female> you know she was <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> Gay just as Aaron Porno <Speech_Female> she was committed <Speech_Female> to her family when she <Speech_Female> was going out in pillaging <Speech_Female> <hes> <Speech_Female> for livestock and bringing <Speech_Female> home pigs <Speech_Female> I.
