Description

Jack Byrne was introduced by his neighbour, Jim O’Neill, at Jack’s cottage at Kyle. He spent his entire adult life working for local farmers, and his father before him worked at breaking stones for the Council was road building. Jim O’Neill and Jack discuss the methods of threshing, from the steam thresher to the combined harvester. Jack’s passion in life is to restore old farm machinery, and in the recording he describes the restoration work which he has carried out over many years. The recording continues as Jack walks a mile through the fields to the location of a druid’s grave, in the land of Margaret Cullen.
