We travel to the lost village of Newtown Jerpoint in County Kilkenny.
Jerpoint Park is located south of Kilkenny City just outside the village of Thomastown. We joined the owner of the park – Joe O’Connell – for a tour and talk on Newtown Jerpoint, a rediscovered medieval village located on his land. Have a listen to Carina and Joe chatting in this interview – and be prepared for the revelation of a very important individual buried on the site:
A real hidden gem – and well worth a detour if you are anywhere around Kilkenny City.

Slán for now, Mike & Carina.
