But Burren will now get the Walkman 37 years behind the rest of the developed world.
One Burren residents told Newry Spud:
“We can’t wait to get this new invention. The idea of being able to walk around and listen to cassette tapes without plugs is something that is blowing my mind right now. I won’t really believe it until I see it to be honest.”
