Ep 253: Irish Pirates

Irish Pirates
Topsail ‘o the mornin’ to ya!

Season 10 roars into port with a slurry photos about Irish Pirates! Celebrating the season opener, Flora grabs the Jameson and Guinness and takes you through some fun history with stories of Irish Pirates. Learn about the likes of Anne Bonny, George Cusack, and Grace O’Malley. Hear the tale of the Ouzel Galley, the ship that disappeared for 5 years leading to a rather happy ending. And join David as he toasts history, podcasting, and you the listener! It’s a once-a-year tradition to have a slurry photos episode, so keep that in mind as Flora leaves in the ‘outtakes’ and stutters. Take a good swig of whiskey, polish that shillelagh, and try not to get too seasick – we’re heading to the high seas on this episode of Blurry Photos!
