    Episode 62: Whittled Away, a Photography Series, with Patrick Cross

    We have talked about the book “Whittled Away - Ireland’s Vanishing Nature” twice already. In episode 20 our guest was the author, Pádraic Fogarty, who was also featured in episode 35 where I brought you the recording of his talk under the same title as the book.

    Today I talk with Patrick Cross about his photographic project based on that book. We also talk about photography (the outdoors flavour), human impact on the environment and natural history.

    Episode 61: African Swine Fever Awareness and Prevention with Shane McAuliffe

    Episode 61: African Swine Fever Awareness and Prevention with Shane McAuliffe

    The issue of African Swine Fever, ASF for short, is important for hunters and other outdoors people who might get to travel to countries with wild boar populations. In fact, all tourists travelling to and from countries where ASF is present should be aware of the basic facts and take the necessary precautions.

    To raise awareness of this serious disease, I sat down with Shane McAuliffe, who is the director and secretary of the Irish Pig Health Society, to talk about ASF, what it is and what you should and shouldn’t do if you are coming back home from one of the countries where ASF is present.

    Episode 60: Merry Christmas Message from Tommy’s Outdoors

    A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all listeners to Tommy’s Outdoors podcast and viewers of Tommy’s Outdoors YouTube channel.

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for joining me this year on Tommy’s Outdoors platform: the website, the podcast, and all the social media networks. Thank you for all the comments, likes, shares and other engagements, including those less than positive. It’s all good in the end and it encourages me to put out even more outdoors related content.

    All the best and may you spend many unforgettable hours in the outdoors in the coming year.

    Episode 59: National Association of Regional Game Councils with Dan Curley

    Episode 59: National Association of Regional Game Councils with Dan Curley

    A few weeks ago I published a series of videos on YouTube regarding the proposed EU ban on all lead in shooting and fishing. At that time, Dan Curley, the chairman of NARGC, helped a lot by providing me with the information and documentation regarding this issue.

    In this episode, I met with Dan in person to discuss what has happened since. And a lot has happened. In fact, you should check Dan’s appeal under the link below regarding the action you ought to take if the issue of lead use in shooting and fishing is something you care about.

    But the ban on lead is far from the only thing we discussed in this podcast. We discussed the work and role of NARGC, the scientific projects NARGC is involved in, the state of the countryside, woodcock population research and predator control issues.

    Episode 58: Shore Fishing in Norway with Irish Angling Adventures

    Episode 58: Shore Fishing in Norway with Irish Angling Adventures

    James is a fellow blogger and vlogger on Irish Angling Adventures. We had the pleasure to host him on episode 42. The second part of that podcast was dedicated to his trip to the Norwegian island of Vega. We finished that podcast with James’s plans to come back to this excellent fishing spot. Not long ago he and his fishing buddies came back from their second trip to Vega island. That right there should tell you exactly what this episode is about.

    Episode 57: Wild Deer Association of Ireland with David Dunne

    Episode 57: Wild Deer Association of Ireland with David Dunne

    The Wild Deer Association of Ireland was on my radar for a long time for all the obvious reasons. I have even had one of their long-time members, Paul Dowling, on the podcast. But we ended up talking about deer hunting in general, rather than about the Wild Deer Association of Ireland.

    So, more than one year later, I am pleased to host on the podcast David Dunne, who is a seasoned deerstalker and the event organizer for the Wild Deer Association of Ireland. During our session, we talked about the association and its goals and campaigns. We also discussed many more general subjects related to wild deer, hunting, and the environment.
