Episode Summary:

Welcome to Season 3, Episode 6 of the Letter from Ireland Show. In this episode of the Letter from Ireland Show Carina follows along the Irish ancestry trail of one particular Irish family – but we feel it’s a story that most of our listeners will recognise! We start in the town of Listowel in north County Kerry – and end up on a lovely farm in northern Illinois – both home to the immigrant Irish ancestor of this family. Do join us on the trip – we think you’ll really enjoy it!

The Letter from Ireland Show is 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!).
