In this episode of the Letter from Ireland podcast we take a literary turn! First off we have a look at that literary masterpiece of Jane Austen - Pride and Prejudice - having fun with some of the Irish versions of the character's surnames. Then, we trace our way from County Down to Yorkshire in England to visit one of the outstanding literary families of modern times - and share more on their surprising Irish origins. With lots of great music along the way!
