You’re in the hands of expert storytellers

I enjoy listening to the guys recounting stories of Galway from years ago, many of them transcending place, making them universal. My favorite episode might be about when Woolworth’s first came to town. Ronnie’s voice is pure butter for me. Thanks for all the hard work you put in!
