An unexpected flood, cattle going into a bank and the indispensable Tailor’s Goose are among the recollections of the charming, pipe-smoking 75 year old Michael Johnson, a fifth generation tailor based in Tullow, County Carlow. Season One of the Vanishing Ireland Podcast concludes as Michael recounts some of the remarkable scenes he has witnessed from his window seat in the tailor’s shop, as well and the contentment of working alongside his son.   Music by Liam Mulvaney
