Show Notes Chapter Markers

Máire McCole won the Mary From Dungloe in 1983. Becoming the first Mary representing Dungloe to win the title. 40 years have gone by and its a special anniversary since Máire's victory, a win which thrilled locals. I went along to Máire's house for a chat with her on August 1st past, which by chance turned out to be 40 years to the night since her memorable victory.  She reminisced on many of her great memories from this famous Dungloe festival. I learnt a lot during the interview that I didn't know about the history of the Mary From Dungloe, including Máire mentioning in depth the story of how and why the festival got its name in the beginning.  I hope you enjoy the interview.
