Description

Now aged 96, Mary Clifford has lived almost the entire century in the village of Ballyheigue, Co Kerry. As soon as her school days were over she helped on the farm. Mary Clifford recalls the drawing of seaweed from the beach and cycling to Tralee to do the shopping during the Emergency period. She spoke about the Porter Ball held in Ballyheigue after the drawing of the harvest. I also found out the meaning of what the ‘old stripper’ means. We finished our conversation with an amazing story about her experience one evening looking at they sky with her sister and what they saw.
