We had a wonderful suprise today. We made the iTunes Top 25 Most Subscribed Travel Podcasts List today. Not bad considering there are 1,061 podcasts in that category… and podcasts about visiting Disney tend to get the most attention.

Thank you to everyone for listening and subscribing. We're working on two new episodes for you and hope to have them done soon.

    Hey guys! I’ve just recently found you and your podcasts and have listened to all of them- and enjoyed every minute. As a music teacher and trad enthusast I enjoy finishing each episode with a song, some of which I have never heard before. I appreciate the time you’re taking the time to share Ireland with the rest of us as we dream of another trip. Keep up the good work, and I look forward to the next episode!

    Thanks Holly,

    We’re having a great time doing the podcasts. When we started, our intent was to focus on Irish Travel, but based on feedback from so many people, it’s become clear that our listeners like a little history, culture, tips and music as well.

    I hope you’ve got a trip to Ireland in the works…even if it is a long way off.

    Thanks for taking a moment to leave us a note.

    Hi Guys, I too enjoy the song at the end of the podcast and wish you would include the song name on your show notes. I live in San Francisco and belong to the SouthEnd Rowing Club which has a St Paddy’s Day Party (the oldest on the West Coast) that features Irish music. I am thinking of maybe performing a song for a future party.

    How about a show on the sporting life in Ireland? At my club we have a couple of incredible rowers from Limmerick and would be interested in hearing more about water sports around Ireland. Swimming at the Forty Foot outside Dublin is a topic that often comes up in our club sauna. Also, I know some Irish yoga teachers in San Francisco and would be interested in yoga related retreats in Ireland. It would be a great to practice yoga in such a glorious setting as the Irish countryside. Plus it enhances one’s energy level and allows visitors to relax and be open to new surprises that travel presents.

    How about a show on Irish contractors returning to Ireland (since you are fixing up your cottage)? SF is a thriving hub of Irish builders, and it would be interesting to hear their impressions of the changes upon their return. The ones I’ve me here always instill in me a great enthusiasm for travel to Ireland.

    Thanks
    Patrick

    Patrick,

    Thanks for all the great suggestions. Our list of ideas keeps getting longer, longer…which is a good thing.

    We do include the song name in our Episode Guides, but in case you missed them…#1-Kitty O’Toole, #2-She Moved Thro’ the Fair, #3-Danny Boy, #4-The Old Dungarvin Oak, #5-Molly Malone, #6-Grace, #6B-Finnegan’s Wake and #6C-The Green Fields of France (Willie McBride).

    Hi guys. Love the podcasts. Last time I wandered around Ireland I found an incredibly vibrant music scene in the clubs of Belfast. There was some great traditional hard rock and R&B bands and the scene seemed to be on the verge of breaking out. I thought it was a grittier and more inventive musical incubator than Dublin was. Have you considered Ireland’s modern music trends as a topic for your show? (I understand NYC’s Irish-American punk-folk-reggae band Black47 is touring there this summer.)

    Hi,
    It is great to hear about your travels! Even if I am a Scottish girl married to an Irish man! Corey, contact me!

    KazamaSmokers – We love the idea of focusing on Ireland’s modern music scene. Once we catch up on the travel side of the podcast (we’ve got five episodes in the queue) we can start thinking about a few other topics.

    Sierra – glad you found us. I’ll drop you a line later today. It’s good to hear from you.
