Description

The Houlihans of Coomaspere were one of the last families in the townland to farm the land there. This recording made with Martin Houlihan (69) of Carrnan, Cahersiveen provided great information on the locality. The local people, their names and nicknames, the places where they came from and their houses which are now closed up, were described to me in great detail. In this recording Martin also spoke in the vernacular, and his ability to work his many sheepdogs, was spectacular to watch.

Keywords: rural life, poultry farming, population decline, vernacular landscape, changes in farming
