How It’s Irish: Máirtín is from Cork, and he’s seeking funding to help support his DVD about “The People’s Republic of Cork,” to be called From Cork with Love: a Travelogue of the Beautiful City. The project, Máirtín says, was “rompted by Fáilte Ireland’s promotion of The Gathering 2013.” There’s only 4 days to go in his Kickstarter Campaign— and apart from his promised Love Forever there are also great premiums to be had, including his latest CD, a Tea making lesson, a bodhrán lesson and more!
We sent him some questions about the project and about Cork, in an exclusive interview below!
MdeC: Cork was it’s own People’s Republic around the time of the Civic War for 6 months. Had it’s own courts and currency. We are the Texas of Ireland, the most southern, the biggest County and we don’t give a sugar about anyone else.
MdeC: An owner of a coffee shop where I would tempt people to drink good Hot Tea in America.
NYIA: What’s in your backpack?
