DOROTHY HARDING, BORRISOKANE

6.9910.00

Description

I paid a visit to the poultry farm of Dorothy Harding, in a rural area 2 1/2 miles from the shores of Lough Derg and this recording was made as we walked around the farm. Dorothy spoke about her difficult childhood, and she said that she had had a family of seven children, and found herself very much the breadwinner. She then began this business of rearing ducks, turkeys and hens, which has been so successful. She took me through the process of culling, plucking, cleaning and cooling and earlier I spoke to her daughter and son about their mother, and her extraordinary life.
