One of the major pilgrimages of the medieval Christian world, the Camino de Santiago (the Way of St
James) is a network of routeways that lead to the shrine of St James the Apostle in the Cathedral of
Santiago de Compostela, Galicia in northwest Spain. Join Dr Bernadette Cunningham, author of Medieval
Irish Pilgrims to Santiago de Compostela (2018), as she shares the story of Galway’s Margaret Athy and
