History Off The Beaten Track - Ireland's Top Heritage Sites (You've Never Heard Of)
Ireland has literally thousands of amazing historic and archaeological sites that stretch back thousands of years. Many of the best of these are off the beaten track and do not feature on tourist trails.
A few weeks ago archaeologist Neil Jackman took me to one of these - the vast sprawling ruins of Athassel priory in South Tipperary. In a wide ranging interview, Neil explained the history of this 800 year old building. We also meandered through fascinating chapters in Irish history and discussed other great sites to visit and how to find them!
It was a really fun episode to record - I hope you enjoy it.
