This is the second in a series of five podcasts to accompany the National Gallery of Ireland exhibition Shaping Ireland: Landscapes in Irish Art. In this series, artists and experts, in conversation with Mark Cantan, will talk you through an area of the country that has special relevance to their work and life. These places of personal significance will also be digitally mapped, allowing listeners to embark on their own adventures into the Irish landscape.
This week's guest is Alex Slazenger, head gardener of Powerscourt Estate, Co. Wicklow.
