MICHAEL MAHNKE, FRANCIE TIERNAN AND VINCENT COYNE, ISLANDMORE

6.9910.00

Description

Michael Mahnke, a native of Düsseldorf in Germany, and is now the proud owner of Islandmore, and a farm in Terryglass. He brought me on his boat across to Islandmore, where we met the gamekeepers Francie Tiernan and Vincent Coyne. The recording was made on the island and begins with Francie, who told me that he was brought up on the island, and worked with his father, for the Winston family, who purchased the land in 1964. He is now working for the present owner, Michael Mahnke. Vincent told me that he is originally a native of Headford in Galway, and is now living in Ballymoyle, 10 miles up the lake. He is employed in gamekeeping, which he explained to me in great detail. Departing from the island late that evening, I felt I had recorded what island life on Lough Derg was really all about.
