Description

Have you always wondered why there are so many Irish names along the Pembrokeshire coast? Gary Jones explains how the geography of Fishguard is favourable to Irish Sea crossings.

Folk music in this part of Pembrokeshire has a distinctly Irish sound and local phone registers contain many Irish family names. Gary Jones sat down with Ports, Past and Present to explain how the advantageous geography of Fishguard harbour had an influence on trade across the Irish Sea and centuries-long Irish immigration to this area.
