MICHAEL PARKINSON, AGE 81, SLEVOIR, TERRYGLASS (Part 2)

6.9915.00

Description

In this recording Michael Parkinson talked about the canal boats plying up and down the Shannon. The sound of these barge boats was part of everyday life. Mikey himself farmed his father’s land, and he has memories of a mill in Carraigahorig to which his father brought grain. Mikey himself, as a young lad, would sit on the bags of grain as they were being transported to Dungarvan, to another mill. He also spoke about flax growing locally. I finished with a short interview with Mikey’s sister May, who told me about the craft of basket-weaving.
