KATY BRACKEN, AGE 63, THE SANDPITS, BLANCHARDSTOWN

6.9915.00

Description

Katy Bracken lives in one of the beautiful labourer’s cottages built in earlier days by the Guinness family for their workers. Her father was head gardener for the Guinness’ estate. Her people originated from the Strawberry Beds and a member of her family was in charge of the Phoenix Park racecourse at one time. The information she put on record about the local brass and reed band connections, and her family’s association with poetry, were of great interest. Katy completes the recording with a fascinating story of an inheritance which she received and which she handed over to the Church.
