This recording was compiled at the home of Margaret Williams, where she was accompanied by her daughters Carmel, Bernie, Emily and Mary and a neighbour Helen Keogh. All of these ladies have worked at Urneys. Margaret Williams grew up in Capel Street, and the family later moved to Cabra. She married her late husband Joe and they moved to the cottages in Tallaght in 1951, when Joe got employment at Urneys. While browsing through old photographs illustrating good times and the social life associated with Urneys, this company of ladies recall their memories of the factory.
