We are delighted to add Kilkenny born author Claire Nolan to our growing list of featured writers.  A timely piece from Claire whose book The Stone is her version of what happened to Alice Kytler the last suspected witch in Kilkenny in the 1300’s.  In our first podcast with Claire we spoke to her about her book and about Dame Alice in Kytler’s Inn Kilkenny, once one of Alices’ many ill begotten properties but nowadays a busy and welcoming hostelry in the heart of Kilkenny and like almost everything else in the city lies under the shadow of it’s famous castle.  This is a busy week in for us not alone for podcasting but for answering the many e mails we receive and we are delighted to have put several of our visitors question to their favourite writers and forwarding on the answers.  We tend not to get these questions in our comments section but under “contact us” on our home page, these are private e mails and do not appear on our public pages so if you have a question to put to one of our writers you can click here and we will be happy to pass on your e mail.  We also have a new story for our Myths and Legends channel written and narrated especiallyfor Halloween by Jho Harris which will be posted within hours as well as The Calendar Road as Sinead Mc Clure looks into the ways of country folk during Halloween.  If you would like to keep up to date with all the latest podcasts as they are published, you should subscribe to our free RSS feed or join us on Face Book and look for Podcasts.ie or you will find us on Twitter under podcastsdotie.  We have also been approached by one or two literary related Irish websites who want us to join forces with them to make the appreciation of Irish writers more accessible, more on that as it developes.
