We are pleased to launch our podcast with an episode on Living in a Thatched House. Thatched houses are to be found dotted around the Irish countryside, and particularly in west Galway. Evelyn Stevens has lived in a thatched house in Annaghdown since the 1980s, and here she joins Paul Greaney to discuss the joys and challenges of living in a thatched cottage. This complements our recent videos John Joe Duggan: Thatching / Tuíodóireacht and Thatching at Cloonboo with Marika Leen.
This is our first podcast in what we hope will be a regular series. We welcome suggestions for future topics and interviewees. Keep up to date by following us on your usual podcast provider for future episodes! You can find us on Spotify, YouTube, Apple Podcasts, Deezer, Stitcher, and SoundCloud.
We are grateful to Galway County Council for supporting this project under the Community Enhancement Programme 2020.
