This recording begins with Eileen Crennan’s memories of Crutt and she speaks about the local people and their occupations. Her earliest memory is of the fire at the Scrahan Pit in the 1920s. Her adolescent years are described as she recalls cycling over the hill to Carlow town, to work in a local bookshop for many years. She recalled a very interesting story relating to her grandmother, who used to travel to the local Big House to work as a seamstress. Eileen also recalls her own days working in the local bar and grocery shop in the village of Crutt.
