The Dead Friends, Episode 3

In this episode I’ll tell you about faeries, the Virgin Mary’s appearance in Inchydoney, “wrecking”, how Dan McCarthy had tresses and a goatee that made him look like a pirate or a musketeer, and how he died.

This is the third episode in my six-episode podcast memoir about five teenagers who gathered at a party in a bedsit in Dunmanway, West Cork during mushroom season in 1993 – a Curehead, a couple of ravers, a punk and a mod.

I’m the only one left on this Earth in 2018. I will delve into each of the four dead friends’ lives, and each of their deaths, in turn – before ending with a demon-haunted climax in Gatsby’s “niteclub”.

New episodes of The Dead Friends will be released each Wednesday until 31 October. You can get them here on the Dublin Inquirer website (episode 1, episode 2), or via the Dublin Inquirer Podcast on iTunes or Stitcher, or on Libsyn.
