Beyond The Pale

November 29, 2018

Two recent English incomers (called 'Blow-Ins' locally), talk about living in a small village in North County Clare, in the rural West of Ireland, in an area called The Burren, 6 miles from the Atlantic Ocean and the Wild Atlantic Way.

Subjects covered include: the origins of the expression 'Beyond The Pale'; the cost of living in Ireland compared with England; shopping in local shops and supermarkets; the impossibility of insuring a small van; seeing Pine Martens, the importance of saving drystone walls, education and schools in England; Irish history and the English.
