This recording took place beside by the Carragh River. Nicholas Curran (52)has for many years looked after the water for fishermen who come to fish there from all over the world. He is also fighting a legal case to allow the river to be used without any interference. All his work is voluntary. He explained that his own father worked on the railways between 1933 and 1969, returning as a ganger to Cahirciveen just before the railway line was closed. I finished the recording by talking to some of the French fishermen who were fishing the Carragh River on a beautiful spring day.
