Johnny Barry’s voice would have been well known to Kilkenny people, as he played Irish country music for many years on local radio. He speaks frankly about his hard upbringing, selling newspapers on the streets at a very young age, later showing the films in two cinemas in the city, and working as a part-time fire-fighter. He has always lived in his family home, where he was brought up.
