Walking around Dunseverick
For the last two years the cliff path between Dunseverick and Portbradden on the North Coast has been closed because of a landslide. It reopened this summer and walkers were delighted because it's spectacular and blends in so naturally with the working farms up there and the sheep and the cattle you see on the high fields. Anne Marie McAleese met with Paul McIlwaine from the Bannside Ramblers, who know every step of the path.
The story of Catherine O'Hare Schubert
The first European woman to enter British Columbia overland from Eastern Canada in the Nineteenth century was from County Down, near Drumballyroney and the townland of Ballybrick. The youngest of nine children, Catherine O'Hare was born in 1835 and when she was only 16, she went to America to work as a maid for a wealthy family on the East Coast. But the story gets even more fascinating as Marie McStay talks to proud Rathfriland man Andy Peters.
