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:
We start off with this letter, all about the connections between an ancient Irish mythical queen – and a very real “descendant” of hers who came across similar problems in Canada.
Letter 2: The Two Graces of County Mayo.
Next up, we chat in this letter about two special ladies who came from County Mayo – one a Hollywood movie star, the other a Pirate Queen – but sharing a first name between them. Can you guess who they are?
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.
