Weekend Passport: Festival celebrates Irish culture

Each week global citizen Nari Safavi helps listeners plan their international weekend. This week he tells us about a festival celebrating Irish culture, with a focus this year on the Easter Rising, an armed insurrection that was mounted by the Irish, hoping for independence from British rule. Author Sinead McCoole talks about her most recent book, "Easter Widows." McCoole is in town for the Irish Books, Art and Music(iBAM!) Festival.
