This RTÉ Radio 1 “Documentary One” podcast looks at the connections that have linked the southeast of Ireland and St. John’s Newfoundland. The earliest record is 1683. They talk to the descendants of the original settlers to help tell the story.
The stories are wonderful and the people and music are delightful. One lady shares some great advice she was given to protect herself from the fairies. If you have Newfoundland or Irish ancestors then this podcast could provide some new information. If you do not it is still worth listening to “The Newfoundland Connection.”
