Welcome to Season 1, Episode 18 of the Letter from Ireland Show. In this episode we look at two stories about Irish religion that may surprise you – the first about a religion leaving Cork for North America and the second about a religious community that came to County Limerick.
We are delighted to bring you Episode 18 of The Letter from Ireland Show – 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!).
In this episode, Carina reads two of our letters from Ireland. First up, she shares a the story of how the idea for a Quaker colony in Pennsylvania may have originated in Ireland in “From Cork to Pennsylvania”. She then moves on, brave woman, to share the story of how a group of religious refugees set up home on in County Limerick. The second letter is called “From the Banks of the Shannon”.
