The First of the Month - Join Michael and Robbie throughout 2018 for a themed discussion relating to folklore, custom, ritual and song in Ireland today. This new collaboration stems from a relationship which Wexford natives Michael and Robbie have developed over recent years where they will exchange accounts and stories from around the country and share their own personal observations on the living folklore and language within Ireland today. Their true connection with the subject matter and their respect for the people who impart their stories, knowledge and experiences has urged them to produce this monthly series.
