A Listening Ear

With Time to Talk, Michael Healy-Rae established himself as a new storyteller, steeped in the traditions of rural Ireland. In A Listening Ear, his superior storytelling skills come once again to the fore, as he reveals more tales from his Kerry childhood, and brings us back to the countryside and characters that we have grown to love. With his quick wit and remarkable observations, Michael is a consummate chronicler of rural life and the charm of local heroes and happenings.
