Agnes O’Sullivan, , neé Lynch, (56) grew up in Kells. On a fine summer’s morning, we walked the mile from Kells Bay to the local school recalling Agnes’s memories of her schooldays, and recalling all the former activities associated with the walk to the school, closed since 1968. Agnes worked in the local post office for a Mrs Goulding and she also worked in the telephone exchange in Cahirsiveen. This provided some interesting stories from the days of wind-up phones. This recording provided a view into rural schooling and the many benefits associated with that form of education.
