Voices from Ireland

    Sean Og and the Hag

    Sean Og and the Hag

    Sean Og and The Hag is a story set in 1799 in County Longford, Ireland. It does not take long for Sean Og Mc Donagh to discover that the beautiful young lady who finds him out in the dark of an Irish halloween is not what she appears to be but what can he do to get out of her clutches as he makes his way home on a dark October night?  Sean Og and The Hag was written and narrated by Jho Harris for Podcasts.ie especially for Halloween and we take another listen each year just before the eve of Samhain.

An Irish Author

I love these podcasts.ie downloads - you really feel as if you are listening to a high-quality old-style radio program directly from Ireland. The quality of sound is really impressive and the content brings you right into what it is to be Irish. A perfect way to travel home....

Ireland for Ever ,

Quality at last

I am a great fan of podcasting, particularly audio but I get really annoyed by some of what passes for entertainment. These podcasts are of the highest quality, something sadly missing in some offerings. The subject matter which is Irish culture and the production are excellent

Mad About Podcasts ,

A boon for Lovers of Irish Podcasts

I found the free Irish podcasts from Podcasts.ie to be fascinating. The iTunes feed dsiplays a list of the sites own home grown shows but a visit to this site uncovers over 150 free audio podcasts including exclusive interviews and performances by many noted Irish writers of poetry, prose and music. There is also an array of mythical stories and public events to enjoy. Overall, one cannot but give a positive review of this website, all podcasts are free, they of the highest quailty and cannot be found anywhere else on the web. The shows availabe through iTunes are professionally produced and presented and can be enjoyed at ones lesure.
