This epsiode transports you back to the Aran Islands in the summer of 1901. Based on accounts of John Millington Synge, this is a mesmerising picture of island life at the turn of the 20th Century. You will hear the vivid descriptions of a society so different it is hard to believe it existed into the 20th century.

It is a time and place that is now lost and gone forever.

John Millington Synge’s words are read by Aidan Crowe http://castawayactors.com/male-actors/aidan-crowe/
