#1 | The Letter V


The People Vs. The Letter V

The traditional Irish alphabet had 18 letters, but in the 20th century, there was a gradual thawing of attitudes to the other eight, such as V.

However, a very vocal vanguard view V as a villainous visitor to the vernacular vocabulary.

In this episode, Darach is joined by Gearóidín, Peadar and Siún and they discuss the controversial letter. It’s a tale of political intrigue (and quacking ducks).
