Our guest on this podcast was born in County Galway and would be considered Irish musical royalty. In 1985 she recorded her debut LP, Tired and Emotional, a major hit here in Ireland. After Tired and Emotional, she drank alcohol excessively and was hospitalized more than thirty times. She started her journey of recovery in 1994 and celebrates 26 years of life without drink and drugs. A number of other records followed in the years to come, and she became a critical favourite throughout much of Europe. With 1997's After the Fall, Mary made her U.S. debut, soon earning a devoted following on American shores. She has released many albums since including her latest album Live & Kicking in 2018. So we are happy to welcome Mary Coughlan.
