Interview with Bernard Sweeney and Dylan Foley
Episode 4 is an interview with Bernard Sweeney and Dylan Foley. We delve into Irish history, specifically settled and unsettled histories, the racism experienced by unsettled groups (the Traveller community), the silencing of groups due to forced assimilation, colonialism, and social exclusion. Bernard shares his experiences of alienation growing up as well as his pride in being an Irish Traveller and living with a mindset he has dubbed "outside the colony"; Dylan shares his and Bernard's collaborative research and a part of Irish history that has been well and truly covered over, and Joy and Katie offer their perspective and learn plenty along the way.
