Cheers, Scott and Jake Bourbon Lens   About Sliabh Liag Distillers Bringing the almost-forgotten smoky style of Irish whiskey back into the consciousness and repertoire of discerning premium spirits drinkers is the collection of Silkie whiskeys. Each blended to an exacting standard by Sliabh Liag Distillers founder, James Doherty, the core range of three whiskies – The Legendary Silkie, The Legendary Dark Silkie and Midnight Silkie – take drinkers on a journey through the rich, surprising rewards of whiskies with a varying degree of smoky character. James's childhood holidays in Donegal nurtured a love for the folk tales of the Sliabh Liag peninsula and more importantly a dream for the future possibilities of reclaiming Donegal's distilling heritage; this is the driving passion behind James and Moira Doherty's return to Donegal to establish Sliabh Liag Distillers. The Silkie range – named after the mermaids who would come ashore, shedding their seal- like coat to become beautiful dark haired maidens and steal the hearts of local fishermen – is the first product launched by the business. Founder of Sliabh Liag Distillers, James Doherty, says the inspiration for the collection of Silkie whiskeys comes from memories of those early years in Donegal: “In the mornings, I would head down to the kitchen, where beside the stove, grandad's pipe would be sitting from the night before. Grandad was a wonderful man, tall, strong, hard-working, and generous, with a mischievous twinkle in his eye. Eleven-year-old me would tug on his pipe and I can viscerally remember the sweet tobacco, smoky and ashy aroma. It seemed to compliment the smell of the stove, the peat and my gran's baking. Although it's a morning moment, the whiskey is the taste of the night before”. Once he has this taste in his mind's eye, the sense of place for James is richer than the lighter Irish whiskey style prevalent today. His aim is to create a style that harks back to a richer era in Irish whiskey, pre-prohibition, and for which Donegal's distillers were famed. James continued: “I look for balance in the structure of that taste in the whiskeys available to me. One building block of Dark Silkie is intense sweetness - Grain Whiskey virgin oak provides a rounded sweetness, caramel toffee; it feels rich, luxurious, generous, and safe, and captures the innocence of that version of me. It also brings a degree of tannin to the whiskey. Another is smoky, ashy; triple distilled peated malt provides the pipe aromas, an earthy smoky note that we can get to play off the sweetness of the grain. Accents include aromatic dryness. To balance the intense sweet grain I choose the aromatic freshness of a double distilled single malt in sherry, more estery and zesty to cut into the sweetness in the final blend, all of which creates a maritime herbal quality that is almost salty”.

Mary Boyle disappeared from a swampy field next her grandparents home in an isolated part of Donegal in 1977. She disappeared without a trace, and her case has become the longest running missing child case in Ireland. In forty years, the case has seen only one arrest and also has been linked with notorious Scottish child-killer Robert Black, and has drawn the attention of controversial media figures. But, through all that, Mary is still missing, and her mother still prays daily to know what happened to her. ******** Find us on Facebook or Twitter! With thanks to our supporters on Patreon!

Pronounce it once with me - Sleeve League, with a little "sh" on the "s". Sliabh Liag, translating to "mountain of stones" or "mountain of stone pillars", is a postcard-perfect spot on the northeast coast of Ireland by Donegal. The county, according to Sliabh Liag Distillers Founder James Doherty, is sometimes called "the forgotten county" because it borders more of Northern Ireland than the Republic of Ireland (it's part of the latter but shares only a 5 mile border) and is forgotten by both governments.  Maybe the distillery could change that. It's not their goal, to be clear, but it is their goal to show the world what Donegal and true, historically northern Irish whiskey is all about. Midleton and Bushmills have held down the fort while Irish whiskey fell and rose again - now it's time for the newbies to reclaim that local character.  Whether it's Sliabh Liag in Donegal, Waterford, or Dingle, the new distilleries on the island of Ireland are doing incredible, noteworthy things. Peated Irish whiskey used to mean Connemara - no disrespect to Connemara, but no longer. Thanks to James and Moira at Sliabh Liag, we're about to see a new age of Irish whiskey that hearkens to the old and brings us to the new. I'm damn excited to see where it goes.  _________________ Before we jump into the interview just a few quick notes: If you haven't joined the Patreon community yet, please consider doing so!

Here's a secret you don't know about the CU 2.0 Podcast. Just about in every show there are some minutes of talk before the show really starts  Most shows do similar. It helps get the guest comfortable and, importantly, it lets the host do a sound check to make sure all is working.Those minutes almost always are deleted in editing.Not in this show with Amy Travers, a regional vice president with NA Security focused on biometrics - voice - in financial services. That's because we started by chatting about her personal background, growing up in County Donegal in the northwest of Ireland and earning degrees at the Institute of Technology in Sligo. And then…she's in Florida where she founds a contact center company.Understand that a good part of what her present employer does is equip contact centers to help authenticate incoming callers and to blow an alerting whistle if the caller seems fraudulent.Travers knows that work from the inside.Nowadays, the NA tools - which grow out of the wildly popular Dragon Naturally Speaking tools - are used in a range of applications to improve security and screening.But a fundamental starting point is that the voice is indeed something that can be used to authenticate and almost all of us are comfortable with the procedure.You'll hear exactly how slick the tools have gotten - and indeed says Travers they pay for themselves at most FIs. It's a wide ranging talk about what's happening right now in biometrics and voice - listen up.Listen up. Like what you are hearing?

In this Film Ireland podcast, Gemma Creagh talks to Gerard Lough, the Writer and Director of 'Spears'. Packed with twists and turns, Spears kicks off when a Private Investigator is sent from Ireland to Florence, Italy to track down a woman who mysteriously vanished there. Meanwhile in London, a Dissident Republican does an arm's deal with a new seller he does not trust. In Berlin, a scam artist spends a weekend with a married woman he tries to convince to leave with him. Each of the three men make a startling discovery which forces them to team up back in Ireland and take revenge on those who have wronged them. Fittingly, the film's title is taken from the Emily Bronte quote; “Treachery and violence are spears pointed by both ends; they wound those who resort to them worse than their enemies.” Typical of the Neo Noir genre, the film is a stylish looking affair with tension and fear in abundance but trust in short supply. Over half of the film was shot in Donegal, Ireland with the rest of filming taking place in Florence, Berlin and London. Spears now available on VOD on Amazon (UK & US).

On Ron's Amazing Stories this time we have some UFO encounters sent in by listeners Terrell, and Rosalina. Terrell has a strange visitor after seeing a UFO, and Rosa watches a UFO flyby while drinking a very expensive bottle of wine. Then we have a striking story from the pages of the pulp mags about the old spaceman who faces his own mortality. We end the show with a new look at Newton and his discovery of gravity. So sit back, relax and enjoy the show. Featured Story - Death of a Spaceman Our featured story for this time comes from Amazing Stories Magazine March of 1954. I wrestled with this one for quite a while before deciding whether to play it or not. The subject matter is a bit rough. It tells the story of the death of a spaceman from the point of view of that very spaceman. I found it deeply profound and entertaining. It is my hope that you do as well. It is titled Death of a Spaceman and was written by Walter M. Miller, Jr.  It is read for us by Gregg Margarite. The manner in which a man has lived is often the key to the way he will die. Take old man Donegal, for example. Most of his adult life was spent in digging a hole through space to learn what was on the other side. Would he go out the same way?   Stories Include - Blind Confession, Alien Encounters, The Night to be Feared, Big Balls of Light, Death of a Spaceman, and Château Lafite Rothschild Ron's Amazing Stories Is Sponsored by: Audible - You can get a free audiobook and a 30 day free trial at   and - Good Treats for your dog to eat.

Their signature vocal style combined with instrumentation including harp, hammered dulcimer, bodhrán, guitars, button accordion, whistles and mandolin appeals to audiences of all ages. Jim Ofsthun bio: Jim is an original member of Willowgreen, and a talented vocalist and instrumentalist with international performances on Irish bodhrán, guitar, button accordion, and whistles. He is also a member of McInnis' Kitchen, and of Eira. He has family connections to the music through Ireland and Newfoundland, and is considered one of the top producers in Irish music in the Midwest. 4:37 - Willowgreen “Crocker's Cove Reel” from Willowgreen 7:34 - POITIN Poitín are an award-winning traditional Celtic band from Pilsen in the Czech Republic. They explore all forms of Celtic music but are firmly grounded in the pub session tradition and like nothing better than sitting round a table in the corner of a cosy pub playing old favourites about tarry sailors, merry maids and drunken nights. Poitín have performed at festivals across Europe in Italy, France, Poland, Denmark, Germany and the Czech Republic. As the album says, it's 'one for the road', to go with you and keep you company in your car or on your bike, and this Celtic world music will take you from Ireland to Argentina, from England to Egypt, from Brittany to the Czech Republic and beyond. 15:44 - Poitin “Claudy Banks” from One For the Road 17:58 - AMELIA HOGAN - TAKING FLIGHT Amelia Hogan is an impeccably authentic singer of Celtic music and her heart comes through in honeyed tones on Irish, Scottish, British, and American styled vocals.

Marc Gunn is a Rhythm & Folk songwriter who fuses Irish and Scottish folk songs with pop culture. One brewery called it Sci F'Irish music. His musical weapon of choice is the autoharp. He breathes acoustic Rock and Roll into this folk instrument and adds a bellowing taste of rhythm & blues. Gunn found musical inspiration performing Irish drinking songs. He learned the art of performing at Renaissance faires and from his childhood idol, Elvis Presley, who said, “You've got to put on a show to draw a crowd.” His concerts are fun filled with sing along songs that get the audience's feet tapping. And now for my song… I first heard the song “Peggy Gordon” from a cassette of Irish Drinking Songs I found at Half-Price Books in Austin, Texas. I learned most of my early Irish song repertoire from that album, songs like “Whiskey in the Jar”, “Big Strong Man, “Wild Rover”, “Bog Down in the Valley” and lots more. Their version of “Peggy Gordon” was short, but memorable. I played it on and off for many years. I remember singing it at a pub in Switzerland when I met Heidi and Stef of the Celtic band Bow Triplets. In July 2009, I met my future wife, Gwen, while touring in Virginia. We had this whirlwind romance and began talking on the phone every day and went to see each other as much as possible even while I was out on tour. I was completely mesmerized by her. A few weeks later, I was back in Austin. I was scheduled to record my next studio album with Rich Brotherton. He's an incredible engineer and had done some brilliant work for Ed Miller and lots of top-notch artists in Texas. I was having trouble singing the song. I was pitchy and my voice lacked any real emotion. The lyrics have this great feeling of love and longing. Which is exactly the feeling I was having with Gwen so far away. And so… I closed my eyes, focused on Gwen, and sang. To this day, I still tell people it is one of my best recordings. Because I feel like I nailed it. And then to top it off, Rich Brotherton added some absolutely beautiful guitar work, as he did throughout that album. It is definitely one of my warmest and lushest and best-produced albums. 1:42:07 - Marc Gunn “Peggy Gordon” from The Bridge 1:46:26 - ENDA REILLY Enda Reilly is a folk singer, songwriter and guitarist from Dublin, Ireland.

“Women in AI” machine-learning model predicts 46,000 new Ukrainian refugees to arrive in Ireland

An all-female group of data analytics researchers is predicting that the number of Ukrainian refugees in Ireland will exceed 90,000 by March next year, with the number expected to rise to 107,000 by the end of June 2023. The group's study, which was conducted by Women in AI Ireland's WaiPRACTICE programme in partnership with CeADAR, Ireland's Centre for Applied AI, analysed data from the Central Statistics Office (CSO) and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) around the influx of refugees to Ireland since the turn of the century and created a machine-learning model capable of predicting future numbers. The aim of the project is to help lawmakers plan for the increasing numbers and assess which areas will need additional resources to deal with the influx. Researchers found that 61,000 Ukrainians had been allocated Personal Public Service Numbers (PPSNs) by the end of November this year. Based on historical trends, the researchers' model predicts that if the war continues another 30,000 Ukrainians will arrive in Ireland by the middle of March, with a further 17,000 arriving between March and the end of June. This would bring the number of new arrivals from Ukraine in the first six months of 2023 to 46,000, adding up to a total of 107,000. The project was undertaken as part of the Women in AI Ireland WaiPRACTICE Programme which selects mostly female AI enthusiasts from a range of backgrounds and tasks them with using data analytics to find innovative solutions to major social issues. The eight-strong team of volunteers worked under the guidance of a CeADAR mentor, and were tasked over 12 weeks with investigating how Ireland can continue to provide humanitarian support to displaced populations in the midst of the housing crisis. The group featured members from a range of industries and backgrounds, including PhD students, data scientists, research engineers and even a NASA scientist. Their findings were presented to the WaiPRACTICE Showcase online event on December 12th. CeADAR partnered with Women in AI Ireland to promote the visibility of women in AI, as well as the principles of diversity, equality and inclusivity. The project also served to nurture the talent pool ahead of a planned round of hiring following CeADAR's formal acceptance into the European Data Innovation Hub (EDIH) scheme in 2023. CeADAR mentor for the prediction model group, Natalia Resende, said: “Analysis of the UNHCR dataset revealed that the number of Ukrainian nationals arriving in Ireland in 2022 is unprecedented in history. Based on our analysis of these historical trends we can predict that the number of incoming refugees from Ukraine will continue to increase each month. “A total of 61,000 Personal Public Service Numbers (PPSNs) were allocated to Ukrainian refugees in November 2022. If the war remains active, we can expect that figure to reach more than 91,000 in the first half of March 2023. In June 2023, we could reach a total of 107,000 since the beginning of the conflict. “The refugees are housed across all the counties in Ireland but mostly in South West, in Kerry, Cork, Clare, Galway and Donegal from North East. The CSO data revealed that the majority of these people are women, many of them single parents with their children. The outputs we delivered as part of the WaiPRACTICE programme have the potential to be used by official bodies, such as the Refugee Council, to make plans and allocate resources for the coming year.” Spokesperson for the visualisation project group, PhD Student Ana Paula Moritz, said: “We want to help the Irish government make better decisions about where to house displaced people. The migration crisis is having a compound effect on Ireland's housing crisis. Some 61,000 Ukrainians sought refuge in Ireland up to November while Ireland provided international protection to almost 14,000 asylum seekers in 2022 – a record annual total.” Edward McDonnell, Director of CeADAR, said “Women are under-represented...

Oh, well, I'm 52 now, and I've been, I've been playing outside mainly trekking and hill walking or hiking since I was about 12, and then as soon as I got my first car I was just off hiking on my own around Scotland. 03:05 How Iain became a guide? All the things in life are not planned. It just happens that the more you do something, the more people hear or see that you're doing something. I was rock climbing. I moved to Donegal and I was rock climbing the sea stacks and stuff there. And the more I did, the more people contacted me. Before long I was taking people out. 04:15 Which of your activities are the most popular? The most popular is sea stack climbing. People just want to do something that's different. 18:17 If you could share one tip for anyone coming to Ireland to climb, what would that be? In coming to Ireland, the chances are that they're coming from a place where there's going to be a lot of bolts in the rock that they've climbed. I don't wanna say there's no place, but there are very few places with bolted roots. When you come to Ireland to climb, you're likely gonna be on your own. So having your own gear, getting a guidebook, working with the weather, getting things done. There's more, perhaps more chance for disappointment with weather and not finding cracks, it's just not a big sport, so just, be ready to have a, have a look about, you may not climb, but you'll have a nice day anyway Follow up with Iain Email: uniqueascent@gmail.com Facebook Instagram Linkedin Twitter YouTube Tourism Ireland Failte Ireland Steller

Rosses Community School Dungloe, in Co. Donegal has become the first ever Irish winner of the Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) flagship STEM education program, goIT (go Innovate Together). The team of five Transition Year students from Rosses Community School competed with schools across Ireland and UK to win the recent monthly challenge to Promote Social Inclusion for All by creating a digital innovation that empowers and promotes the inclusion of all people, regardless of their background. GoIT seeks to bridge the science, technology, maths and engineering (STEM) learning gap in schools and has benefited more than 130,000 students worldwide since 2009. The initiative empowers students with the skills and practice and provides mentorship to prepare them for careers of the future. To date, the international goIT monthly challenge has led to the design of more than 26,000 tech-for-good digital innovation prototypes by young innovators. The winning project from the team at Rosses Community School saw them develop their ‘Coffair' App which they designed to help reduce the exploitation of coffee farmers that are faced with language barriers when trying to negotiate fair prices for their goods. Their innovative app would enable coffee farmers to connect with buyers in a global market to enable more transparency in the supply chain. Commenting on the achievement, Brian Kelly, TCS CSR Manager said “I am thrilled that the Rosses Community School were the first Irish winners of the goIT challenge. This monthly challenge is a recurring opportunity for classrooms to directly engage in the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through the goIT digital innovation. It is also an excellent opportunity for students all over Ireland to express their innovative ideas and gain valuable experience in presenting their ideas.” The winning students recently visited the TCS Global Delivery Centre in Letterkenny, where TCS provides IT services, consulting and business solutions on behalf of its many Irish and multinational customers. While visiting, the TY Economics Students Dylan Doherty, Cianán Mc Daid, Louie Mort, Eoghan O'Hagan and Darragh Davidson spent the morning in the TCS boardroom discussing their app idea with the TCS Leadership team Andrea McBride, Gerard Grant, Chris Lynch and CSR Manager Brian Kelly. TCS leadership were highly impressed with the ‘Coffair' app innovative idea, the students' detailed presentation, and their confidence. Andrea McBride, Head of TCS Global Delivery Centre said: “We were delighted to welcome the winning students to our Global Delivery Centre in Letterkenny to present to our leadership team. It was great to hear about their fantastic innovation and to give them some information on our work at TCS, giving an overview of what we deliver to our customers around the globe and the employment opportunities available for their future in Donegal. We hope the goIT experience was a fun and creative way to learn more about STEM and computer science.” The TCS goIT program aims to inspire students to consider a career in computer science and technology, spark curiosity in their minds and enhance confidence and employability. It also works to empower students to design and develop innovative digital solutions?for community problems, provide exposure and insight into varied roles within an IT company and the business world?and challenge gender stereotypes by showcasing women in STEM as role models. TCS has a large presence in Ireland where it employs over 1,000 people located at the TCS Global Delivery Centre in Letterkenny, Co. Donegal. TCS is now launching the December GoIT Challenge. This month we are celebrating all the wonderful Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) we helped tackle with technology this year. Students can choose any of the pervious challenges from this year and design an app to solve a problem around that SDG.

Welcome back to the Candlelit Tales Podcast. ‘Tis the season for spooky folktales, and in this series, we will tell you more of our favourites. In this episode, we take a look at one of the many and varied forms of the Púca, who can appear as a creature of the otherworld, a human, an animal, and much more besides. In this tale, the Púca seems to cry out against an injustice in Co. Donegal. But on further investigation, the crime was more complicated than it seemed, and its only real witness spoke from beyond the grave.

Nigeria is suffering its worst flooding in a decade with 1.4 million people displaced and more than 600 killed. There are now concerns that the country may face catastrophic levels of hunger. The BBC's West Africa correspondent, Mayeni Jones, visited flood-hit Kogi state and reflects on what her journey revealed about the state of the country. The Netherlands is currently lurching from crisis to crisis - including a tense debate over how to accommodate thousands of asylum seekers. In recent weeks, judges ordered the Dutch government to raise the standards in the reception of refugees in line with the European minimum. Anna Holligan visited a reception centre in the country's rural north. Many who fled Iran after the revolution in 1979 had to find their way in new countries, including Israel. Suzanne Kianpour met with a singer who left Iran for Israel as a child and spoke to her about how she managed to adjust to the different culture and her desire to build bridges between enemy countries. Bhutan has kept its borders firmly closed for two and a half years. Now it's re-opened to tourists, and an additional daily tourist tax is set to make it a much more exclusive. Locals who cater for less extravagant budgets are being hit hard, says Michelle Jana Chan. it was just a normal Friday afternoon when tragedy struck the village of Creeslough in county Donegal in Ireland. An explosion at a petrol station killed ten people - with police describing it as a tragic accident. Members of the local community have pulled together in their grief with small acts of kindness, says Chris Page.
