The latter of which the guide is all too familiar with… But just ignore the coughing and listen to his tales of a plague-ravaged Dublin!
- Hear an account of plague victims trying to soothe their wounds in the waters of the city’s drinking supplies
- Learn about the mayor’s schemes to keep the disease at bay
