An Irish Birthday Celebration (#830)
Join us as we toast to the birthday of the Letter from Ireland, celebrating a decade of connecting with 60,000+ global Irish descendants through our letters and podcasts – thank you for being part of our journey!
In this episode we celebrate an Irish birthday, 10 years of the Letter from Ireland! In the summer of 2013, we started to write, and send out, a weekly letter from Ireland. Two years later we started the Letter from Ireland podcast.
Today, the letter goes out every Sunday to over 60,000 people of Irish descent all around the world and continues to thrive – all due to the support and feedback we get from our wonderful listeners and readers. Thank you one and all!
We share two letters entitled – “10 Years of The Letter from Ireland” and “Why I write the Letter from Ireland”.
We also have some wonderful Irish birthday music to help us along the way supplied by Sharon Shannon and friends. I do hope you enjoy!
