Islands Without Cars with Kira Hesser
"Ireland's Inis Meain"
According to legend, Oliver Cromwell, the 17th-century fanatical Prostestant "Lord Protector" of England, gave the Irish Catholics a choice: They could go to hell or go to Connacht. Some went farther, to islands off Ireland's west coast, including Inis Meain. Hesser explores Ireland's pre-colonial past as the 150 Gaelic-speaking inhabitants of this wet rock in the Atlantic try to figure out how to manage their legacy and lifestyle just outside of the contaminating influences of the modern world.G
