Manchán Magan has decided to do his bit to help our battered economy by spending his money at home. So he sets himself the challenge of surviving only on goods made in Ireland. But, how far will he get? The rules are simple.
He will set off on a three week journey around Ireland and everything he wears, eats, drinks, reads, travels in, and sleeps in, along with any activity he decides to participate in, must be made in Ireland. If it’s not made here, he cannot partake.
The aim of this series is to explore just how self sufficient we are and whether or not it is possible to live on Irish goods alone.
