The podcast for people with Cavan connections returns for Series 2

Last year, Cavan Heritage Office launched a new podcast series called Where We Belong, and it was a big hit, with listeners tuning in from all over the world. It even reached number 9 in the Austrian History podcast charts!

Directed by Alan Bradley, Where We Belong returned for a second season last week. As you'd expect from the Heritage Office, the chosen topics are focussed on the arts, nature, history and culture, all of which are likely to appeal to family and local historians, and anyone with a connection to County Cavan. Among the latest episodes is a fascinating conversation with award-winning actress Derbhle Crotty in Cavan's Town Hall; an intimate chat with Hughie and Bridie from Crosserlough on their childhood memories of the infamous ‘Big Snow of ’47’; insights into Cavan’s Wetlands with ornithologist Heather Bothwell; a thrilling visit to St. Mogue’s Island with its mythology and folklore and even a quick stop off at a Buddhist meditation centre tucked away in Bawnboy.

Where We Belong Season 2 is streaming now, for free, on all podcast streaming services including Apple Podcasts and Spotify. It offers a unique insight into Cavan's rich heritage and the passionate people who still contribute to it. Check it out!
