Connie Fahy, the oldest in the group of three masons, has seen all the changes in the craft over the last half-century, and proudly speaks about the buildings in the city in whose construction he had been involved. Joe Fahy speaks about his craft as a bricklayer, and about the sources of the bricks and their differences in colour. Dan Jones’s contribution to the recording is an account of the difficulties of working outdoors in all weathers, and the dreadful drenchings they were subjected to. He discusses the men’s loyalty to the contractor in the production of the very best work.
