Sean O’Shea, my previous interviewee, visited Mike O’Shea (95) in 1993 in Pittsburgh, where he recorded him as he discussed the genealogy of the O’Sheas of Cahiratrant. This recording is unique in its content and clarity. Mike O’Shea had qualified as a schoolteacher and taught in Wexford in the early part of the last century, and because of restrictions on his teaching Irish he left teaching to emigrate to Pittsburgh, where he worked in the steelworks, as did many other Irish emigrants. This recording greatly compliments the other recordings made of this part of West Kerry.
