Voices from a Vanishing World - The Aran Islands 1901

Between 1898 and 1902, the Irish playwright John Millington Synge spent several summers on the Aran Islands. Shaped by the harsh environment of the North Atlantic Ocean the islanders lived in a unique society. Old customs and traditions that had died in many parts of Ireland still survived on the islands. 

Synge left a mesmerising account of island life and this podcast transports you back to the summer of 1901. You will hear the vivid descriptions of a society so different it is hard to believe it existed into the 20th century. 

It is a time and place that is now lost and gone forever.

John Millington Synge's words are read by Aidan Crowe

“From the creator of the Irish History Podcast comes the story of Modern Ireland and its people written in death”
