Having driven about a mile through the old estate in Ballyshane to the home of the Tallons I recorded stories and memories associated with the large estates and their subdivision by the Land Commission. James Tallon also spoke about his memories of the Civil War and his days in the Irish Army during the Emergency period. Later he worked as a rent collector from 1954.
