Bonny Dwyer’s story begins with his schooldays when he was taught by the nuns at a reformatory school (St John of God’s Convent). He trained as a tailor and began his working life in Delaney’s at the age of 13½. He speaks about his work, and recalls the people who worked in the Castle, one of whom was Jim Higgins, a chimney sweep and fine fiddle player.
