Title The Worker's Cauldron Podcast: When Mary Moved: Ireland 1985 Degree of recognition International Media type Web Duration/Length/Size 53mins Country/Territory United States Date 23/05/22 Description This week we take a look at the strange moving statues phenomenon that attracted hundreds of thousands of Irish Catholics to shrines across the country in the summer of 1985. The moving statues were part the bleak social landscape of Ireland in the 1980s, and a series of scandals leading up to that summer ignited something of a social movement that politicized the alleged miracles.
We are joined by Victoria Anne Pearson of University College Cork and Cian Gill of the Wide
Atlantic Weird Podcast who help contextualize the strange occurrences.
