Welcome to Season 3, Episode 5 of the Letter from Ireland Show. In this episode of the Letter from Ireland Show Carina introduces you to five very different heroes of Irish Culture and Heritage. She visits a man who restarted a Whiskey distillery that was in his family for hundreds of years, a woman who oversees the visitors to one of the best known books in the world, another man who discovered a hidden town on his property, an ex-political prisoner who brings people on political tours around his home town and finally a farmer who decided to refurbish the castle on his land. Five different stories that we think you will really enjoy!
