In the second recording, Lizzie Gallagher remembers the tinkers who would call to her home in former days and she recalls her school days, saying that children stayed in school until they were around fourteen because there was no secondary school education. The fear of the stick made you learn long ago, she maintains. She describes the teachers as being very cruel. Also recalled are the dances long ago in Grange Hall and she also has memories of the Civil War, and Brideogs. She celebrated her 100th birthday recently surrounded by many friends.
