Joe Curtis is an avid collector of historical memorabilia associated with the local villages in North Co. Dublin. He recalls his mother’s people, the Gilsenans, who have lived in the area since the 1600s, often employed as carpenters. Joe speaks about the great success of the Baker family in the business of horse-breeding. As he browses through his collection of old photographs, he recalls the world renowned tradition of the local craftsmanship at embroidery in 19th century Balbriggan and he recites a poem local to his area.
