What role did the Irish play in the Transatlantic slave trade? Were the Irish ever enslaved or slave owners?

Join my special guest, Dr. Maurice Gleeson for a compelling overview of Ireland and the Slave Trade.

Dr. Maurice Gleeson is a psychiatrist from Dublin who works in London as a pharmaceutical physician. He is an avid genealogist and has traced his Irish family tree back to about 1800 on half of his ancestral lines. Using DNA, he was able to get back into the 1600's on one line, and this inspired his interest in Ireland's involvement with the Transatlantic Slave Trade.
