Broadcast media radio show Travel Expert Stephanie Abrams wraps up the weekend following St. Patrick's Day with program content focused on Irish movers and shakers including Eamon O'Cuive, grandson of Eamon De Valera, Past President of Ireland and key activist in the creation of the independent Republic of Ireland and Malachy McCourt who was named "Irishman of the Year" on St. Patrick's Day 2021, also recognized in NYC as "Malachy McCourt Day!"
Hour 1: With the news flooded with attention to racism, in general, and racism within the royal establishment of the UK, in particular, Stephanie focuses on travel as a solution to racism, a subject she has addressed for decades as the mechanism to create bonds between people and diverse cultures in keeping with Mark Twain's 1800's comment, "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts."
Then join Stephanie as she chats with Eamon O'Cuiv in Ireland and Malachy Mc Court in New York City:

Hour 2: Eamon O'Cuiv, TD Irish Government, Connemara, Galway, Ireland.

Hour 3:   Guest: Malachy McCourt, Author, Actor, Celebrity Personality, New York City, New York, USA https://patch.com/new-york/parkslope/mayor-declare…
While media travel expert Stephanie Abrams had plans to interview author, actor, raconteur, wit, owner of the first Singles Bar in New York City and key figure in the Pulitzer Prize winning memoir written by his brother, Frank McCourt, featured in the book and film, "Angela's Ashes," Malachy McCourt, for this weekend's St. Patrick's Day wrap up, Malachy regrettably took a fall and broke his leg on the day before St. Patrick's Day 2021. Since surgery was required and planned for, of all day, St. Patrick's Day, not only did this unexpected procedure mandate the cancellation of his new appearance on Travel WITH  Stephanie Abrams but also nullified Malachy's appearance, even by internet, to be present at a ceremony led by NYC's Mayor Di Blasio naming St. Patrick's Day 2021 "Malachy McCourt Day" and honoring Malachy as "Irishman of the Year."
Since Malachy McCourt is a dear friend of travel expert Stephanie Abrams and a frequent guest on Travel WITH Stephanie Abrams, Stephanie shares a recent interview with Malachy  recorded while Stephanie and her husband, Mark Abrams, Remote Producer for Travel WITH Stephanie Abrams and Travel TV WITH Stephanie Abrams, were in "Lough Down," Stephanie's description of being in "lockdown" in 2020 in Ireland and Northern Ireland which extended their planned trip from three weeks to to FIVE (5) MONTHS. During that time, Stephanie caught up with Malachy McCourt who lives in NYC. Malachy's interview is rebroadcast here.  Enjoy!
