On this week’s show:

sodshow, powerscourt townhouse centre, bloom fringe 2015 (22)

On this weeks show we continue with Episode 4 of The Sodshow Live Sessions at Bloom Fringe 2015 from The Powerscourt Townhouse Centre; as we chat to Mary, the manager of the Powerscourt Townhouse Centre, and Maureen of The Bonsaid Shop, also located in the centre.

It’s a great interview where Mary gives us a real feel for the history behind the Powerscourt Townhouse Centre, and how it continues a rich tradition of entertaining. For more information on the history of the centre, please click here. Maureen has a wealth of knowledge and over 30 years experience in cultivating and selling bonsai in Ireland. A very learned lady indeed, it’s a pity we didn’t have more time to chat to her about it!

The Sodshow meets Finbarr OMahony of West Cork Secret – Part 2

On This Week’s Show:

peter donegan, finbarr omahony, west cork secret

Part 2 of 2, as Peter Donegan returns to West Cork Secret, Kilbrittain. Part 1, embedded below.

There Peter met college friend, friend, colleague, fine gentleman and fellow horticulturist Finbarr O’Mahony of West Cork Secret.

And you probably wouldn’t believe us if we told you, or you would; but Peter was again, camping, in Cork, on his holidays, in the very stunning gardens of West Cork Secret. Whilst there, the former students took a little time out to chat together.

From college life before, during and after Kildalton were they studied together; to setting out in business at younger than 25 years of age; and from the lows of the tough years and getting through; to just what and why some choose to tough it out in an industry where the rewards are not entirely monetary – but more than worth every single second.

Part 1 aired Friday 10th July. Part 2, Friday July 17th.
