Dublin Quakers podcast

On Christmas Day Dublin South FM presented an hour-long broadcast entitled Our friends in Dublin.  Their presenter Mary Lavin had spotted the poster announcing the 150th anniversary of Churchtown Meeting and decided to investigate Dublin Quakersand their faith and practice.  During the previous summer she had interviewed a number of Dublin Friends  and this was the result.  To hear the podcast click on
