Description

Part of a series exploring lesser-known places in the north of Ireland. This episode takes us to Donegal, where we see the revivial of the Carndonagh street fair and music festival and learn about the history of the market town. The Inishowen peninsula is the largest peninsula in  Ireland, and its residents share its history and tradional industries. We see thatchers at work, boats being built, and hear about the once-booming illegal whiskey industry in the area - though some might question the claim that Donegal taught the Scottish how to make the spirit! Stories of shipwrecks, smugglers, and seafaring abound, including a tale of excavating a ship from the Spanish Armada.
