Happy Goatherd ,

Lovely and informative

Very entertaining and helpful podcast on the Irish language and all things Irish. The host is a congenial guide, and the guests are always interesting in the perspectives they bring.

Ive only just discovered this, so thankful for the archive!

Oh wow what a GEM this is to stumble upon as I stumble and navigate my way through learning Irish (in Los Angeles) in 2023. I was recommended this podcast and I’ve gone back to the first episodes of the revamp in 2018 and following from there. The ones prior of conversations w learners are so valuable and lovely too. I’m so sad this pod isn’t currently active but I’m thrilled for the years of generous materials the boys have gifted us here. Thank you ☘️🇮🇪

Hi Eoin, Is breá liom your Bitesize Irish Podcasts. I will miss listening to them. Very helpful and informative. Will we still have access to listen to your recorded podcasts ? I joined “Bitesize Aistear” and encourage others to join as well.
