CHRISTY AND BIDDY GLEESON, GORTMORE, TERRYGLASS (Part 2)

6.9910.00

Description

The recording continued in the home of the Gleeson family, where Christy Gleeson displayed a patriotic portrait painted by his father. He spoke about the fact that his father was very involved at the time in promoting the Irish language in the area, as well as our Gaelic games, and described a photograph of his three uncles and aunt, who were all deeply involved in the 1916-1922 period. Christy then introduced me to his wife Biddy, who told me that her family name was Kennedy and that all her people had been employed by the Esmore estate. Just as the recording was coming to an end, Christy handed me some writings on folklore which his father had collected in the early part of the last century.
