Ireland with Michael - The Mad Dash

In a wild compendium of sites around the country, Michael visits the shores of Loch Corrib at Ashford Castle, gets a lesson in making Guinness bread at the Ferrycarrig Hotel, tours the gorgeous Mount Congreve Gardens, and even meets the artistic director of Macnas, the creators of the fantastic puppet parades in Galway. He performs a duet of the song Maggie with tenor Glenn Murphy. He stops at Wells House to hear young Sean-nos performer, Iona Ritchie, to visit the Faery Forest located on its grounds, and to talk to storyteller Joe Brennan who regales him with ancient tales of the faery folk.
