Episode Summary:

Welcome to Season 2, Episode 2 of the Letter from Ireland Show. In this episode we talk about Irish citizenship through a story about a movie star and director you may know – and also share the perspective of our very own Courtney Bayne, an Irish-American living in Ireland for a number of years with her family as an Irish citizen. She also nominates a very famous surname for our Irish surname of the week.

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!).
