The County Line Saturday 20 August 2016

In The County Line, renowned poet, playwright and RTE host Vincent Woods travels through the counties of Roscommon, Cavan and Monaghan – exploring the unique identity that each county displays through everything from music and history to speech and sports; landscape and poetry. County identity and cultural expression are such a strong part of Irish life that it’s often possible to find vastly different cultures thriving within a few kilometers on either side of county borders. Vincent Woods sets out to understand why, meeting the people that make up these communities, from local historians and musicians to farmers and students. Each colourful personality has something very special to contribute their home county, and a unique take on local identity. Music, conversation, history and travel come together on this special journey to form a potent radio map of each county in 2016.
