Lynn Temple was recorded at Magee’s Donegal Tweed premises in Donegal Town. Lynn is CEO of the company and he initially discusses the origins of the company and his grandfather’s purchase of the business from the Magee family in the early 1900s. In 1931, Lynn’s father, Howard, began his working life in the business. He was a very far-sighted individual who developed the merchandising side and was very successful. During the 1960s, the company began to become even more successful as contracts from government, such as Aer Lingus staff uniforms, came on stream. In the mid-1970s, Lynn began his career at Magee’s and he discusses his career with the company, the number of people employed at its peak, the extraordinary changes which have come about in recent years with the shifting of the manufacturing side of the business to low-cost countries. At the end of the recording, Lynn Temple discusses his hopes for the future of this fine company.
