Richard Ledrede, Bishop of Ossory, is famous for his role in the trial of Alice Kyteler, but there’s another side to this man, as revealed in a precious manuscript known as the Red Book of Ossory.

Acknowledgments: We are grateful to Very Reverend Stephen Farrell, Dean of St Canice’s Cathedral, for granting us permission to film in the cathedral and facilitating our visit. We are grateful also to The Representative Body of the Church of Ireland for permission to use images of RCB Library Red Book of Ossory, D11/1/2.
