Our New Season

The new season sees Ciara and Jon try their hand at some interesting activities throughout Ireland. The first episode sees our inquisitive duo in Kilkenny, exploring the history of Hurling, learning how to make a Hurley and how to support your local team at a County Championship Final. Away from the pitch they try their hand at pottery making with Nicholas Mosse, visit the ‘local’ wildlife at Ireland’s Reptile Zoo and discover all there is to know about a pint of ale at the Smithwick’s Experience. No holiday to Kilkenny would be complete without a visit to the Castle and Ciara and Jon discover a very fun and alternative way to see the grounds.
