Episode Summary:

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!

    Most enjoyable. Especially the stories of immigrants from Ireland. It was not easy
    For them to settle in a strange land☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️
