Stories by the Fireside with Dorothy

In 2020 Dorothy decided to try her hand at podcasting. She realized it wasn't too much different than the audio versions of her Newsletter and the recent audio version of her book By the Fireside with Dorothy so she decided to stick with those formats.

It's said that Ireland is a land of stories and story-tellers. In Rev. Dorothy's early days she would sit at the kitchen table, reading by oil lamp, or around the fireside, with the kettle ever on the boil, ready to make a pot of tea for family, friends or neighbours who dropped in. So now she invites you to drop in, sip your tea, and warm yourself by the fire, as she shares some short tales that go up hills, down valleys and around many corners. The hearth illustrated is in the Northern Ireland home of her late friend from teenage years, beside which she spent many dreamy hours during visits.
