Description

This recording begins with a story about a great storm which destroyed many thatched cottages in the area and killed a number of livestock. Also in this interview some of the local characters were mentioned, as were the ‘knights of the road’. Local pastimes included visits to houses in the evenings playing cards and throwing rings. This brought an end to a wonderfully entertaining and informative interview with two great ladies. Mary spent all life in Cromane, and Lucy spent her childhood there and returned after a stay in England, to spend the rest of her days in the village of her childhood.
