WTS 304: Martin Leahy
For almost two years singer song-writer and activist Martin Leahy has been holding a weekly protest outside Dail Eireann to highlight Ireland's housing crisis. Drawing on his personal experience, every Thursday for over 90 weeks and counting, Martin travels from Cork to Leinster House in Dublin to sing his song "Everyone should have a home".
We chat to Martin about his protest and how he feels about being called an activist. His life as a musician and his reaction to Christy Moore covering his song Snowflakes.
