Watch for archived audio for this show which will be available shortly!

Hour 1 Guest: Pat Gormally discusses Ballina, Co. Mayo, Ireland, Sister City of Pittsfield, Massachusetts where President-Elect Joseph Biden’s father’s family emigrated from and the region in County Louth where Biden’s mother’s family traces her roots to.

Hour 2 Guest: Alison Parsons, Countess of Rosse, Birr Castle, County Offaly, Ireland. Stephanie Abrams discusses the connection between the US quiz show, Jeopardy and Birr Castle which caught Stephanie’s attention. The “answer” was “In 1869, Mary Ward was the first person to die this way.” The contestant created the correct question which was, “What is a car accident.” But no further info was provided connecting this accident to the town of Birr in County Offaly and the Rosse family nor did it connect Mary Ward, a member of the family of Lord Rosse who invested The Leviathan Telescope in the early 1800s and Castle Ward in County Down, Northern Ireland through her marriage to Henry Ward. The complex and fascinating histories of the two castles and the uniqueness of the families who have owned them make for fascinating listening!

  1. Hi Stephanie, Can’t find an email for you. Hope you see this. I enjoyed your novel, RUMORS; it gets the reader right into it on page 1 and doesn’t stop. Thanks!

    Wow, Laura! Thanks for the update! I hope you’ll share your remarks at the site of the online bookseller where you bought RUMORS and I hope your husband reads it too . . . and then tell everyone you know how much you enjoyed it! If you can get a group of 5 or more people who have read RUMORS together, I’d love to schedule an online MeetUp to talke with your circle of friends and/or book club! I’m planning to do a number of these book chats online in 2021 so there’s time for people to order RUMORS in print or ebook and have time to read it before whatever date we decide on. More info is provided in the section at called “ABOUT.’ Keep in touch! Hugs, Stephanie
