To meet John O’Sullivan, I made my way to Bere Island in West Cork. In a most beautiful corner of the island I called to his ancestral home to record the stories passed down to him by his father. It was the most refreshing experience to listen to some of John’s amazing stories. John’s brother Terence also joined joins the conversation.
