The music you hear throughout this episode, is from Mark’s first album, released in 2002 and has accompanied me on my journey as a designer and an ex-patriot whilst living in Australia. It wasn’t until recently though that we really got to sit face to face, in front of turf stove, and drink countless coffees and sing and play guitar together in Mark’s gorgeous cottage in the wilds of a rainy Autumn day deep within a forest on the outskirts of Dublin.
Pat and Nuala Geoghegan are farmers from Askeaton, County Limerick. Soon after the Aughinish Alumina aluminum mining factory established itself nearby, their cattle began to get sick and die. And the Geoghegan family got sick. Their beautiful farm became “the killing fields”..
