Ep 25: Living Legends
It is always nice to run upon someone who can shed light on the foundations of where you live. But meeting someone who understands how Christopher Columbus knew, when he was in Ireland, that there had to be land beyond the great sea, takes that idea to another level. Paeder O’Dowd, studies history and understands how the pieces of the past here fit together. That goes for historic figures from here and those from elsewhere who came here and impacted Ireland, like Christopher Columbus and President john F. Kennedy. And you’ll hear those stories in Episode 25 of Erin’s Isle.
You’ll also hear the story behind Kevin Rohan, musician and radio host in Galway who shares his art every chance he gets. I met him in a pub in Oranmore. A well-known fiddle player with a velvety voice, you can find him in the local pubs. And on Sunday mornings, you can listen to him in your living room.
All that plus A Broad Abroad in Episode 25, of Erin’s Isle.
