Susan of Vibrant Ireland joins Eoin for a chat on the Bitesize Irish Gaelic Podcast. She has lived in Ireland for the best part of twenty years. She’s from the United States, but ended up moving to Ireland. Listen to her great Irish accent! She now lives in rural east County Clare – a beautiful part of Ireland that doesn’t get so many tourists.
