We began recording the first of 10 new podcasts called The Writers Passage yesterday with Author and travel writer John Mulligan as we followed in the footsteps of his great grand uncles from Monasteraden in County Sligo to Cloondara in County Longford and what a great experience that proved to be.  A fascinating story unfolded as we made our way from the bridge near the Flannery brothers house to the point at which they joined The Grand Canal on an epic walk to take them to Dublin just after the famine.  Our post from October 3rd will explain the rest of our itinerary for this week but will make time to let you know how we are getting on as we move south to Cork before heading back to edited our podcasts for you.  In the meantime, we have changed Charlie Mc Gettigan’s podcast so that you can once again enjoy “Feet of a Dancer” among other exclusive performances for Podcasts.ie.
