#59 | Motherfoclóir Live: All The Presidents Meáin

On Wednesday 10th of October, Darach, Gearóidín, Peadar and Éimear swooped upon the Sugar Club on Lesson Street for Motherfoclóir Live to discuss the importance of the Irish language to the role of president. Three presidents in particular are directly associated with watershed moments in the history of the language – Douglas Hyde, Éamon De Valera and Michael D. Higgins.

The gang discuss the implications of their support for an interest in Gaeilge, which inevitably includes a discussion of the 1996 movie Michael Collins, TG4 dating shows, the Gaelic Leinster monarchy, Roscommon and coddle.
