In this episode, Mike and Carina read from two of our letters from Ireland. Click on the titles below to see the full transcript of each letter so you can read along:
In this letter, we look at one of Ireland’s minority religions – and the story of a man who embodied it’s principles.
In this letter, we look at the connection between County Cork and the state of Pennsylvania – all connected by one man who “found his religion” in Cork.
Do feel free to leave a comment or question in the section below. We’d love to hear from you!
Slán for now,
Mike and Carina.
