From a very early age Mikey Tiernan (76) was fishing with his father, and the family lived on a 33-acre farm. He learned the ways of a fisherman’s life from the local men, and followed their routine in netting salmon and harvesting mussels and cockles. When that season finished, he would go to England, picking beet with the local men from his area. This was the way of life for himself and his neighbours in those days.
