The Clare Echo has teamed up with podcast host Fergal O’Keeffe to bring you his new series, Travel Tales with Fergal.
The Podcast this week features the Irish troubadour Jerry Fish who has travelled the world with his music. He reminisces about living the life of a travelling “hippy beach bum” in the 80s with trips to a Kibbutz in Israel and sleeping out under the stars in the Sinai desert and spending months living on the Greek islands of Naxos and Crete. He considers these times of the happiest travel memories of his life.
“I have loved travel for ever and ever. I grew up an emigrant in south London, so I never really belonged. I was told daily I was the Irish boy. We returned to Ireland, but I never really settled as then I was the English boy. So, I have taken to the road since. I became addicted to travel. Since then I have been collecting cultures and learning about new faiths and new countries”.
Jerry share great tales of life on the road with his band An Emotional Fish in the 90s in Europe and American. He fell in love with the Yosemite National Park where the Giant Sequoia trees are over 2000 years old and the majesty of the Grand Canyon in Nevada where the shadows of the sunlight changes the landscape every few minutes.
This travel Podcast interview series is out every Tuesday and guests talk about travel, sport, culture, people, food, politics, history, the tourism industry and life abroad.
