Peter Donegan and Brian Greene take to the studio together (we know, we know it was a blue moon), to introduce Uachtarán na hEireann, Michael D Higgins’ address at the 56th International Garden Centre Congress in Ireland, which took place last week.  We have to thank Bord Bia for being deadly and assisting us in providing you with the scoop on his fantastic speech. The Irish President talks about gardening and horticulture in Ireland, and also about his interest in the topic.
