Welcome to Season 1, Episode 16 of the Letter from Ireland Show. In this episode we look at two qualities that are in short supply in the public world today – Integrity and Principle – and the stories of two Irishmen who had those qualities in spades! Why the picture of the puppy? Do read on and find out.
We are delighted to bring you Episode 16 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!).
In this episode, Carina reads two of our letters from Ireland. First up she tells the story of an Irishman who sought to “Give Protection to the Animals of the Land” and played a leading role in the founding of the Royal Society of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA). She then moves on to tell a more personal story – another Irishman of integrity and principle – as she shares a memory of “An Irish Mentor”.
