Stories from an Ireland that no longer exists

I love listening to this podcast, especially the stories from pre-Celtic Tiger Ireland. It’s astonishing to me that as recently as the early ‘90s, Ireland was very much a different place to what we know now. These stories provide an insight into a world that, as an American, didn’t exist for me while I was growing up. Thank you for sharing and for allowing so many people to tell their stories.

Love this podcast

A great podcast. No glimmer or softening but tells you about a significant period in Irish history. Very non partial to either side.
