  • Listen back to this 5 part audio tour

In July/August 2014 David O’Sullivan of travelled the Cork section of the Wild Atlantic Way. For one week each day he filed 5-10 minute audio-rich reports that aired on Ireland’s largest local radio operation. The segments aired on two flagship morning shows in Cork this month as summer draws to a close. Each segment took many hours of esearch, travelling, recording, and editing. There was a great reaction to the pieces, with local residents, business people and politicians saying it was great to hear “the gems of their area” featured.
