Originally from Wexford, John Ryan was appointed to a teaching post just outside Carrick-on-Suir in 1959. He settled in Piltown as he has a great fondness for the place. His desire to unravel the many legends of the area became a driving force with him, and this recording relates the many prehistoric settlements which exist here between the Slaney and the parish of Glynn. John speaks authoritatively on the subjects of landlordism and of Piltown itself during the twentieth century.
