This recording was compiled in the townland of Scribley, at the home of Barney McGeever, in the company of Charlie McMonagle. Barney’s old thatched home, now derelict, is visited and his young days growing up are recalled. Having finished his schooling, he began work in the mines in Scotland and later returned home. In 1966, he gained employment with the E.S.B., where he remained for 36 years. Charlie Mc Monagle has a passion for dry-stone wall building and he discusses a project carried out in Letterkenny for the Millennium year. This involved restoring a section of a famine wall. These two gentlemen share an appreciation for the rural lifestyle in Donegal.
