Somewhere over the rainbow is a leprechaun waiting with a big pot of gold. Or not.
However, South Australia was like that proverbial pot of gold when it became a sought after destination for Irish people fleeing their homeland in the 1800s.
Tonight on the show we have a PhD student, Fidelma McCorry Breen, doing research into Irish migration to South Australia and her friend, Ciara Merrifield, a local Irish woman who works in the field of human interaction and has plenty of stories to tell about being Irish in SA.
We are also joined by Craig Basford from Big Shed Brewing Concern for a very special SA Drink of the Week segment in which Craig introduces us to two SA Drinks Of The Week – both of them are local brews and Craig assures us they’ve been tongue tested on Irish people

St Patrick’s Day came and went last week with its green beer and pictures of leprechauns on social media. I usually spend March 17 doing my renowned Irish accent but I’ve been mixing with one of our guests quite a bit recently and have sensed she gets really annoyed by it. So that’s why Ciara Merrifield is joining us tonight, along with Fidelma McCorry Breen, to help me understand Irish sensibilities as well as Irish love for South Australia.
Fidelma mentions Adelaide Irish Connect in her interview.
