One of Mon Murphy’s greatest experiences was playing the part of a fishmonger in a film with Marlon Brando in Ballycotton. With great joviality she describes the circumstances, though this film was unfortunately never to be screened. She recalls her involvement in the staging of some of John B. Keane’s plays. She stresses that Cork enjoys several varieties of accent and she provides examples of these glories. She also recounts a tale about Roy Keane’s father, and another involving the hawkers down by the quays.
