Tales of West Cork – Will You Come to an Irish Hooley? (#303)
In 2017 we held the first gathering of our Green Room members in Ireland - which we called "The Green Room Hooley". It was a tremendous success and we are now planning our next gathering, based around the town of Bantry in County Cork. In this Podcast episode we share some special memories - and introduce you to the area around Bantry through stories and chat.
