Margaret Crotty grew up a few miles outside Kilkenny. Her own name was Mulrooney. As a young girl she was sent to boarding school in Dublin and lived close by the school with her aunt. Her recollections relating to her work with Aer Lingus at a very early stage of aviation in this country were fascinating to record as she speaks of flying in the Dakota and Fokker. She goes on to describe her husband’s fine work in the bakery in Kilkenny.
