Description

The second recording was compiled in the old loft of the barn, which Matthew Graham converted into a museum in 1986. He explains the accumulation of the exhibits and discusses some of these which included some old vernacular furnishings. He recalls the local furniture makers, the turf cutters and thatching techniques. Downstairs in the barn sits an old generator dating from 1902 which was used for power before the advent of electricity; this was owned by the Swans of Buncrana originally.
