10 Stops on a Musical Tour Around Ireland (#804)
This week we have a special episode that takes you on a musical tour of ten counties on the island of Ireland. We stop off at each point and share a song - as well as more on the place and the person featured in the song.
This week we have a special episode that takes you around ten counties on the island of Ireland. We stop off at each point and share a song – as well as more on the place and the person featured in the song. Please note that this episode was broadcast in a different format inside our Green Room – and in that show we dedicated the first song to Carina’s mum who died just before it was broadcast. She lived in Cork – and so the first place we visited was county Cork on the list!
You can see the 10 stops mentioned in this podcast in the map at the top of this post.
We hope you enjoy!
