JOHN AND NED KELLY, AGE 60s, PUCKAUN

6.9915.00

Description

While visiting Puckaun, I was very fortunate to meet two brothers, John and Ned Kelly, who have lived in the village all their lives. They were born into the farming tradition, and there were six children in the family. They spoke about their schooldays, and about farming the land. The Kellys have been here for many generations, and the farming they engaged in was mostly tillage. In days gone by, the only sound that could be heard locally was the sound of the barge boats going up and down the Shannon, which could be seen from the house. The villagers themselves were recalled, including the blacksmiths and thatchers, as were the local traditions and customs.
