Episode 166: The Burren

People and Place: of all beauties it is the most beautiful… For the last 6,000 years farmers on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way have sent their cattle up onto the limestone formations of The Burren for Winterage (winter grazing). A unique example of farming and preservation working hand in hand to maintain biodiversity, landscape and way of life.

    It’s profoundly hopeful when we hear farmers talking like priests. The awe and reverence they feel for this land belonging to the most beautiful tradition of people and their place. Thank you guys…
