This recording was made in the comfort of Margaret Thorpe’s lovely old cottage in Swords, in the company of Alice Dow. The two ladies have been best of friends for a long time, having worked together in the Eastern Health Board for thirty years. They spoke about the earlier divisions between people of the Catholic and Protestant faiths and recalled their own upbringing in the Protestant tradition. They spoke of the Mummers, the tinkers, the impoverished people, old street names and visitors to the village over the years.
