Mary Moran grew up beside the castle in Gowran. In this recording she recalls her impressions and memories of walking through the grounds on her way to and from school. In 1955 she married James Moran, a farmer, and they subsequently bought, through the Land Commission, the castle and grounds which had previously been occupied by Colonel Fowler. Mary also discussed her time in Wexford while working as a poultry and dairy instructor.
