JOHN DANIELS, RAHEENARRAN, KILMORGAN

6.9915.00

Description

On the way to the farm of John Daniels, I was accompanied by Leo Cody, and the conversation started at the Viewing Tower, from which Leo pointed out and described much of the landscape and the events which took place there in the past. Now in the company of John, we continued down the boreen to the site of the Black Bog Races, in the parish of Windy Gap. Fond memories were recalled regarding the great gathering of people at the races, the fine spectacle of the gentry, the buying and selling, the three-card trick, and other activities of that nature.
