Welcome to Season 1, Episode 17 of the Letter from Ireland Show. In this episode we look at “Approved” Irish baby names that are found in families – maybe you’ll hear one from your own family?
We are delighted to bring you Episode 17 of The Letter from Ireland Show – a weekly podcast that goes out each Thursday from our cottage in County Cork. Tune in to this episode – and dive straight in to a bit of Irish caint, ceóil agus craic (conversation, music and craic!).
We also send out a weekly letter straight to your inbox every Sunday. Just signup for your free weekly Letter from Ireland by clicking here. – and we’ll let you know how to join in the fun.
In this episode, Carina reads two of our letters from Ireland. First up she shares “An Irish name for your baby” – and covers many of her favourite Irish given names. She then moves to ask you about the “Approved First names in your Irish family?” I think you’ll have a chuckle at this one as you see so many Irish names repeated down through the generations in our Irish families.
