Eamonn MacAoidh was recorded at his home in Mmn Doire in the mountains, four miles from Falcarragh. In the first recording, Eamonn explains that his paternal grandfather Jack acquired the land when it was just bogland. Eamonn recalls his schooling locally and his childhood days. He talks about his own place, the people who lived there in former times, the local placenames, and the subsistence from smallholdings. The local fairs are also recalled. He had thirteen siblings, ten brothers and three sisters, and he has clear recollection of joining a long line of local people as they crossed the mountain down to Falcarragh to mass on Sunday mornings.
