EPISODE 73: Kilkenny – the shebeen is back

Off we pop to the county home of the oldest brewery in Ireland up until recently, and we delve into the resurgence in shebeens around Ireland. (SIRI, what’s a tenuous link?) Chief writer of the Irish Times’ An Irishman’s Diary Frank McNally joins us to discuss illicit drinking dens from Cape Town to Inishowen.

Also, Andrea is obsessed with Kilkenny’s witchy history (festive), Una’s impression of Stephen Donnelly wins an Oscar, and Fine Gael are obsessed with themselves.
