[Re-run] The Sense of Community in the Dingle Peninsula (Ep. 06)

The sense of community

Corca Dhuibhne (the Dingle peninsula) is known for its amazing views of the Atlantic and the Blasket Islands but what people don’t know is that this specific part of Ireland has one of the strongest Irish-speaking communities.

In the sixth episode of the Bitesize Irish Gaelic podcast, author Felicity Hayes-McCoy talks to Eoin about her strong connection to the Dingle peninsula and the people who live here. This community is somewhat unique in our days and Felicity tells us more about how music and storytelling are such a strong part of the Irish-speaking community from Corca Dhuibhne.

This is a re-run of the 6th Bitesize Irish Gaelic podcast in the English language.
