Live (again) from the Trinity FM studio. Hope you enjoy this episode, I had plenty of fun recording it. Thank you all (which was thankfully a great amount) who tuned in while the episode was live (that’s Tuesdays at 3pm), and also a massive thanks to everyone who makes sure to tune in to the podcast episodes. Keen reminder that next week is my last episode on Trinity FM for the month of November! So make sure to get the requests in before then!

This week I speak to Deirdre McGarry Barker, one of the organisers of the Frederick Douglass Civil Rights Festival, about the events coming up from the 26th to the 28th of November in Wexford town. Deirdre speaks about who Douglass was, and why he leaves such an incredible legacy behind him. Tickets are only €10 for the entire weekend (that’s three cups of coffee, as Deirdre put it), with plenty of events to keep you busy! You can find out more on their website or on their Facebook and Instagram. Deirdre also wanted to note that having Senator Eileen Flynn as a keynote speaker is fundamental to this festival, as the mistreatment and racism towards travellers in this country proves we have unacknowledged many civil rights issues.

I decided to go a bit closer to home with my interview this week. It’s officially autumn, and the summer season is over. Which means that in Wexford all the tourists have gone home. Since 2007, my parents have ran Castle Delights Café during the summer months. Growing up in a coffee shop was a unique experience that I am so grateful for. We talk about baking, advice for potential cafe-owners, holiday destinations and horse boxes.
