We are delighted to bring you Episode 10 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 we take a look at how Irish placenames receive those names, and the letter is called: “From Cows to River-Mouths”. Then, she takes us on a journey along an old Irish road – one that was very important to our ancestors in reaching the markets of Cork City: “Come Back the Old Butter Road”.
