Welcome to Season 1, Episode 13 of the Letter from Ireland Show. In this episode we have a literary theme. Carina looks at a famous English writer – and some of her Irish connections, as well as a family of English writers who held their ancestry from County Down.
We are delighted to bring you Episode 13 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 we take a fun look at a great English writer, one of her novels and some of the surnames mentioned: “Pride, Prejudice and Four Irish Surnames”. Then, we move onto another famous English literary family, but this time with their roots in County Down: “From Down to the Wuthering Heights of Yorkshire”.
