Clare Walsh is from Castlebaldwin. She remembers attending school which was situated beside her house and enjoying her schooling. Clare trained as a nurse in England and she recalls applying for and being offered a nursing job in Canada. She describes her experiences there. On the way home to Ireland she travelled through the United States. Clare later worked for three years in Kanturk, Co. Cork, before she moved on again to Tanzania in Africa. She accepted a voluntary nursing job there and she explains the similarity in humour between the Irish and the African people. Back in Ireland once more, she describes how an accident on a bicycle ended her extraordinary nursing career.
