Manchán's A-Z of Ireland Ep.04

Episode 4 celebrates people from the past and how they used nature to provide their daily needs, how they made fire to worship and bond with the Earth, and how a Dublin man harnesses the power of worms to create a vibrant community garden – and, perhaps, a blueprint for a sustainable future.

Manchán's A-Z of Ireland Ep.03

The third episode takes us kayaking offshore, where we burrow under the earth’s surface through crevices in the Irish coastline, we dive into the ocean to listen to the extraordinary sounds of life beneath the waves, and we breathe life into the overlooked tradition of rolling in the Mayday dew.

Manchán's A-Z of Ireland Ep.02

Episode 2 brings us face to face with an iconic eagle, we discover delicious food in an urban laneway, we get away from it all and take solace in nature, and we sample ice cream flavoured with the very essence of the Burren in Co Clare.

Manchán's A-Z of Ireland Ep.01 - Age of Ice

In episode 1 we travel back in time to the ‘Age of Ice’ to find out where the natural heritage of ours began; we unlock the secrets of the Burren, challenge ourselves to find an extinct snail, and wallow under pitch black skies to marvel at distant constellations.
