Priests on horseback, women in snugs and serving as a waiter to the King of Siam in Switzerland are some of the recollections of this week’s Vanishing Ireland podcast interviewee Oliver Reed. Born in Athlone, County Westmeath, the 81-year-old recounts his school days and his work as a waiter, bank porter, farmer and more.   Music by Liam Mulvaney
